A judge in Charleston, SC, ruled this week that prerecorded messages sent to answering machines to promote a radio station fall under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act.


The municipal judge denied a motion to dismiss the case, which was filed by a Charleston resident who received one of the messages from 98 Rock, a city station owned by LM Communications. Consumer privacy activist Robert Biggerstaff said the act was intended to prevent such unsolicited advertising messages.


98 Rock's general manager was not available for comment, the station said.
