Becca Walqhist—head of Snell & Wilmer’s TCPA Practice Group–is one of the nation’s finest TCPA litigators but she’s so humble she’d never let you know about it. She joins me and my team via the Womble Bond Dickinson FIREline and I make her brag about her two newest wins and her experience testifying before Congress.
Why Becca always prefers to stay out of the limelight;
Why Becca may be the only person in America that is as obsessed with shutting down the TCPA as I am;
Why she had to cut short a trip to Greece to testify before Congress;
Why she loves a straight-shooting judge who carries a fire arm under his robe;
Why her Fourth Circuit decision in Hodgin v. UTC Fire & Sec. Ams. Corp., 885 F.3d 243 (4th Cir. 2018) is such a big deal for those facing TCPA vicarious liability suits;
The real back story on how she recently defeated certification of a wrong number class in Bridge v. Credit One Fin., Case No. 2:14-cv-1512-LDG (NJK), 2018 U.S. Dist. Lexis 32004 (D. NV. Feb. 23, 2018);
Why the TCPA really drives Becca crazy; and
The expert Becca turns to most often when certification needs to be defeated.
