The Indiana Supreme Court ruled that robocalls are still illegal in the state.

The Indiana Supreme Court today shot down Indiana robocalls. The court ruled a state law that requires a live operator on the phone before any recorded message does not violate the right to free speech or the right to participate in political speech.

The 4-1 decision involves a 2006 case where automated phone message operator Freeeats.com sought to overturn an Indiana law that prohibits robocalls.

The Supreme Court said a trial court “incorrectly found that Freeeats had a reasonable likelihood of success on its claim that the live-operator provision of the autodialer law violates the Indiana constitution.”
