Plaintiff, CRUNCH SAN DIEGO, LLC, Defendant. Case No. -cv-00-bas-blm ORDER:. GRANTING DEFENDANT S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (ECF ). TERMINATING DEFENDANT S MOTION TO EXCLUDE THE OPINIONS AND TESTIMONY OF JEFFREY HANSEN AS MOOT (ECF ) On April, Defendant Crunch San Diego, LLC brought a Motion for Summary Judgment. For the following reasons, the Court GRANTS Defendant s motion. FACTUAL BACKGROUND Defendant Crunch San Diego, LLC ( Crunch ) operates gyms in San Diego, California, as well as in several other states. Compl., ECF. Plaintiff Jordan Marks entered into a contractual relationship with Crunch sometime before -cv-00-bas-blm
2 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 November,. Id. Crunch uses a third-party web-based platform administrated by Textmunication to send promotional text messages to its members and prospective customers cell phones. Def. s Mot. Summ. J. :, ECF. The phone numbers are inputted into the platform by one of three methods: () when Crunch or another authorized person manually uploads a phone number onto the platform; () when an individual responds to a Crunch marketing campaign via text message (a call to action ); and () when an individual manually inputs the phone number on a consent form through Crunch s website that interfaces with Textmunication s platform. Aesefi Decl., ECF -. Users of the platform, including Crunch, select the desired phone numbers, generate a message to be sent, select the date the message will be sent, and then the platform sends the text messages to those phone numbers on that date. Mot. Summ. J. :. The system then stores these numbers in case the user wants to notify the prospective customer or member of a later offer. Aesefi Dep. :, June,, ECF -. On the specified date the platform sends the message to a Short Messaging Service ( SMS ) gateway aggregator that then transmits the message directly to the cell phone carrier. Ex., Pl. s Opp n., ECF -. Marks alleges he received three unwanted text messages from Crunch between November,, and October,. Pl. s Opp n. :, ECF. This Motion for Summary Judgment turns upon the issue of whether or not the platform used by Crunch may be classified as an Automated Telephone Dialing System ( ATDS ). LEGAL STANDARD Summary judgment is appropriate on all or any part of a claim if there is an absence of a genuine issue of material fact and the moving party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law. Fed.R.Civ.P. ; see also Celotex Corp. v. Catrett, U.S., () ( Celotex ). A fact is material when, under the SMS is a standardized protocol for sending short text messages to cellular phones. -cv-00-bas-blm
3 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 governing substantive law, the fact could affect the outcome of the case. See Anderson v. Liberty Lobby, Inc., U.S., (); see also Freeman v. Arpaio, F.d, (th Cir. ). A dispute about a material fact is genuine if the evidence is such that a reasonable jury could return a verdict for the nonmoving party. Anderson, U.S. at. One of the principal purposes of Rule is to dispose of factually unsupported claims or defenses. See Celotex, U.S. at. The moving party bears the initial burden of establishing the absence of a genuine issue of material fact. See Celotex, U.S. at. The burden then shifts to the nonmoving party to establish, beyond the pleadings, that there is a genuine issue for trial. Miller v. Glenn Miller Prods., Inc., F.d, (th Cir. 0) (citing Celotex, U.S. at ). A genuine issue at trial cannot be based on disputes over irrelevant or unnecessary facts[.] See T.W. Elec. Serv., Inc. v. Pacific Elec. Contractors Ass'n, 0 F.d, 0 (th Cir. ). Similarly, [t]he mere existence of a scintilla of evidence in support of the nonmoving party's position is not sufficient. Triton Energy Corp. v. Square D. Co., F.d, (th Cir. ) (citing Anderson, U.S. at ). The party opposing summary judgment must by [his or her] own affidavits, or by the depositions, answers to interrogatories, and admissions on file, designate specific facts showing that there is a genuine issue for trial. Celotex, U.S. at (quoting Fed. R. Civ. P (e)). That party cannot rest upon the mere allegations or denials of [his or her] pleadings. Fed.R.Civ.P. (e). When making its determination, the Court must view all inferences drawn from the underlying facts in the light most favorable to the nonmoving party. See See also Matsushita Elec. Indus. Co., Ltd. v. Zenith Radio Corp., U.S., () (if the moving party meets this initial burden, the nonmoving party cannot defeat summary judgment by merely demonstrating that there is some metaphysical doubt as to the material facts ). -cv-00-bas-blm
4 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 Matsushita Elec. Indus. Co., Ltd. v. Zenith Radio Corp., U.S., (). Credibility determinations, the weighing of evidence, and the drawing of legitimate inferences from the facts are jury functions, not those of a judge, [when] he [or she] is ruling on a motion for summary judgment. Anderson, U.S. at. DISCUSSION. The undisputed facts show that Defendant did not use an ATDS to send text messages. Defendant argues that the platform it uses to send promotional text messages is not an ATDS as defined by U.S.C. (a) of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act ( TCPA ) because it lacks the capacity to store or produce telephone numbers to be called using a random or sequential number generator. Mot. Summ. J. :. If Defendant s system is not an ATDS, The TCPA does not apply and summary judgment should be granted, dismissing all TCPA causes of action with prejudice. The Court finds that Defendant s system does not incorporate an ATDS. An ATDS is equipment that has the capacity (A) to store or produce numbers to be called, using a random or sequential number generator; and (B) to dial such numbers. TCPA, (a)() (). The Federal Communications Commission ( FCC ) does not have the statutory authority to change the TCPA s definition of an ATDS. The statute defines an ATDS in (a)(). Section (a), in contrast to (b) and (c), does not include a provision giving the FCC rulemaking authority. Compare id. with (b)() and (c)(). Furthermore, (b) and (c) expressly limit the aforementioned rulemaking authority to only those subsections. It is therefore Unless otherwise stated, all further statutory citations are to U.S.C. Section (b)() provides that the [Federal Communications] Commission shall prescribe regulations to implement the requirements of this subsection. Section (c)() provides that the -cv-00-bas-blm
5 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 undeniable that any FCC attempt to modify the statutory language of (a) is impermissible. The FCC itself adheres to this, using the statutory definition of ATDS in their regulations. See, e.g., C.F.R..0(f)(). Even so, the FCC has issued commentary interpreting the definition of ATDS broadly as any equipment that has the specified capacity to generate numbers and dial them without human intervention regardless of whether the numbers called are randomly or sequentially generated or come from calling lists. In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing the Tel. Consumer Prot. Act of F.C.C.R., n. () (emphasis in original). However, this interpretation does not bind the courts. In Satterfield v. Simon & Schuster, Inc., the Ninth Circuit found the definition of an ATDS clear and unambiguous. F.d, (th Cir. 0). Because it is clear and unambiguous, the FCC s 0 statutory interpretation of an ATDS is not binding on the Court. Id.; See Chevron, U.S.A., Inc. v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., U.S. (). Further, the FCC s definition is not predicated on the plain language of the statute, but is instead based on policy considerations. Courts have defined capacity in the context of an ATDS as the system s present, not potential, capacity to store, produce, or call randomly or sequentially generated telephone numbers. Gragg v. Orange Cab Co., F.Supp.d, (W.D. Wash. ) (emphasis in original). The Gragg court expressed concerns that focusing on potential capacity would encompass many modern Commission shall conclude the rulemaking proceeding initiated under paragraph () [of section (c)] and shall prescribe regulations to implement methods and procedures for protecting the privacy rights described in such paragraph. Even if the interpretation was binding or convincing, the FCC s interpretation dealt with predictive dialers and not third-party text messaging platforms like the one at issue here. See In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing the Tel. Consumer Prot. Act of, F.C.C.R. 0, 0 (0). The portions of the FCC s decisions in 0 and that Plaintiff cites to both refer back to the 0 FCC sections regarding predictive dialers. E.g., In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing the Tel. Consumer Prot. Act of F.C.C.R., (0); In the Matter of Rules and Regulations Implementing the Tel. Consumer Prot. Act of F.C.C.R., n. (). -cv-00-bas-blm
6 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 devices and potentially subject all smartphone and computer users to the TCPA, which would be an absurd result. Id. Because these modern-day devices are easily programmable, anyone who uses a computer or smartphone would be subject to the TCPA. Id. It seems unlikely that Congress intended to subject such a wide swath of the population to a law designed to combat unwanted and excessive telemarketing. Additionally, Gragg clarified that sequentially generated telephone numbers are those that are numerically sequential, such as () -, () -, and so forth. Id. Random or sequential number generator cannot reasonably refer broadly to any list of numbers dialed in random or sequential order, as this would effectively nullify the entire clause. If the statute meant to only require that an ATDS include any list or database of numbers, it would simply define an ATDS as a system with the capacity to store or produce numbers to be called ; random or sequential number generator would be rendered superfluous. This phrase s inclusion requires it to have some limiting effect. When a court construes a statute it should, if possible, do so as to prevent any clause, sentence, or word, from being superfluous or insignificant. Alaska Dep t of Envtl. Conservation v. Envtl. Prot. Agency, 0 U.S., n. (0); Cooper Indus., Inc., v. Aviall Services Inc., U.S., (0) (courts are loathe to render part of a statute superfluous). It therefore naturally follows that random or sequential number generator refers to the genesis of the list of numbers, not to an interpretation that renders number generator synonymous with order to be called. The platform used by Defendant does not have the present capacity to store or produce numbers to be called, using a random or sequential number generator, It is even more concerning that under the FCC s interpretation, any phone featuring a built-in phonebook could have the present capacity to qualify as an ATDS. Any device permitting a person to initiate an SMS or voice call from a database without actually dialing the number itself arguably has the capacity to store or produce numbers and dial those numbers [...] from a database of numbers. F.C.C.R. 0, 0 (0). -cv-00-bas-blm
7 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 and to dial those numbers. Numbers only enter the system through one of the three methods listed above, and all three methods require human curation and intervention. None could reasonably be termed a random or sequential number generator. Mot. Summ. J. :. Thus, because the Textmunication platform lacks a random or sequential number generator, it is not currently an ATDS. Undisputed facts show that the system also fails to have the potential capacity to become an ATDS. In Sherman v. Yahoo! Inc., the court found a similar SMS system to be an ATDS because Yahoo! could potentially write new software code adding a sequential or number generator to the system. F.Supp.d, (S.D. Cal. ). In contrast, here Defendant uses a third-party platform that audits its user s accounts pursuant to an Anti-Spam Policy. Aesefi Dep. 0:. Textmunication explicitly bans inputting numbers into its system without either a response to a call to action or written consent. Aesefi Dep. :. Therefore the undisputed material facts show that even if potential or future capacity is fairly included in the definition of ATDS, Defendant s contractual obligations preclude such a finding in this case. Because Defendant s access to the platform is limited, it similarly lacks the future or potential capacity to become an ATDS. The Ninth Circuit, in Meyer v. Portfolio Recovery Assocs. LLC., deferred to the FCC and found a predictive dialer to be an ATDS because it has the capacity to dial numbers without human intervention. F.d, 0 (th Cir. ) (quoting F.C.C.R. 0, 0 (0)) (emphasis in original). The court noted that a predictive dialer is equipment that dials numbers and, when certain computer software is attached, also assists telemarketers in predicting when a sales agent will be available to take calls. The hardware, when paired with certain software, has the capacity to store or produce numbers and dial those numbers at random, in sequential order, or from a database of numbers. Meyer, F.d The 0 FCC Report & Order describes predictive dialers. In most cases, telemarketers program the numbers to be called into the equipment, and the dialer calls them at a rate to ensure -cv-00-bas-blm
8 Case :-cv-00-bas-blm Document Filed 0// Page of 0 at 0 (quoting F.C.C.R. 0, 0 (0)). In Meyer, challenges to the FCC s authority to interpret the statute were waived because they were not raised at the district court level. Meyer, 0 F.d at 0. Here, the Court is able to address the argument and has addressed its merits. The Court finds that the FCC has no authority to modify or definitively interpret any language in (a) of the TCPA. Even though this Court finds the FCC s unauthorized interpretation of an ATDS overly broad, the system present here is factually distinct from the system described in the FCC comment. Predictive dialers use an algorithm to predict when a telemarketer will become available to take a call, effectively queueing callers for the telemarketer. They are neither the database storing the numbers nor a number generator creating an ephemeral queue of numbers. However, database or number generator software is frequently attached to automatic dialers, thereby creating the potential capacity to become an ATDS. Here, there is no potential that the system could be modified to include a random or sequential number generator, and it therefore does not qualify under Meyer.. Defendant s motion to exclude the opinions and testimony of Jeffery Hansen is moot. As in any matter before the Court on summary judgment, the Court first determines if there is a dispute of material fact. If not, the Court applies the law to the undisputed facts and may grant or deny summary judgment. Here, expert testimony opining on legal questions is irrelevant and therefore not a basis for this that when a consumer answers the phone, a sales person is available to take the call. The principal feature of predictive dialing software is a timing function, not number storage or generation. These machines are not conceptually different from dialing machines without the predictive computer program attached. F.C.C.R. 0, 0 (0). This Court concurs with the Gragg court that the statutory interpretation suggested by the FCC is both underinclusive and overinclusive and should not be relied upon by courts. It is overinclusive because any cellular phone with group messaging or conference call features has the present capacity to dial multiple numbers from a database, either as text messages or voice calls. It is underinclusive because systems could be artfully developed to circumvent the FCC s comment. -cv-00-bas-blm

CONCLUSION Accordingly, for the foregoing reasons, the Court GRANTS Defendant s Motion for Summary Judgment and TERMINATES Defendant s Motion to Exclude the Opinions and Testimony of Jeffery Hansen as MOOT.
