State No-Call List Takes Attack

Last updated on Tuesday, August 1, 2006

(CHICAGO, ILLINOIS) - Indiana’s No-Call list has survived another court challenge.

A Federal Appeals court in Chicago has upheld a lower-court ruling that the restrictions on phone calls by professional fundraisers do not violate the first amendment.

The National Coalition of Prayer, Indiana Association of Chiefs of Police, and the Kentucky-Indiana Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America have been fighting to overturn the law for four years.

Attorney General Steve Carter's office says about 70% of Hoosiers have signed up for the list.
