On August 2, the Utah attorney general joined the nationwide Anti-Robocall Litigation Task Force, which investigates and takes legal action against telecommunications companies responsible for bringing the majority of foreign robocalls into the U.S. According to the Utah AG's press release, the Task Force is a bipartisan nationwide effort of 50 attorneys general who have a joint goal of cutting down on illegal robocalls. Twenty civil investigative demands have already been issued by the Task Force to several gateway providers and other entities allegedly responsible for most foreign robocall traffic. According to a press release issued by the Delaware AG, “the Task Force will focus on the bad actors throughout the telecommunications industry to help reduce the number of robocalls that consumers receive and benefit the companies that are following the rules.”
