Highlight

Preemption of state law is not favored, and the framework for analyzing a preemption claim under the Supremacy Clause begins with the basic assumption that Congress did not intend to displace state law.
A state's police power encompasses the duty to protect the privacy of its citizens, including the authority to protect the peaceful enjoyment of the home and the well-being and tranquility of the community.
The statutory language of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 clearly expresses Congress' intent that the Act was not meant to occupy the field within its subject matter.
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act does not preempt a state law which prohibits telemarketing calls using automatic telephone dialing systems or artificial or prerecorded voice messages.
