(CHICAGO) - Indiana has won a victory against telemarketers who use autodialers to play pre-recorded messages over the phone.

Attorney General Steve Carter says the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago has dismissed a federal lawsuit that attacked Indiana's law against automated dialing.

Last year, Carter filed lawsuits against several companies that used autodialers to make political calls prior to the 2006 election. Those companies then filed suit in federal court against Indiana's law.

The attorney general says this means the state can now proceed with enforcing Indiana's automated dialing statute, which allows few exceptions for automated calls.

Among the exceptions are school calls to parents to notify them of important school events or public safety officials who make automated calls to residents to warn them of emergency situations.
