Stop the Calls, Missouri Tells Sirius Radio

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (CN) - Attorney General Chris Koster obtained a preliminary injunction against Sirius XM Radio for no-call violations. Koster sued Sirius in September, claiming the satellite radio giant repeatedly violated the state's no-call laws.

The injunction, which will be in place throughout litigation, prohibits Sirius from making repetitive calls to consumers on the no-call list who notified it they don't want a subscription, or didn't want it after their free trial period expired - unless the consumer expressly authorizes Sirius XM to call.

"Our office will continue to prosecute any business, regardless of its size, when it makes unlawful telemarketing calls to Missourians registered on our no-call list," Koster said in a statement. "It is a consumer's right to demand that illegal telemarketing calls that violate Missouri's laws stop, and no matter how aggressively it fights, no business is immune from Missouri's no-call law. We will continue to go after those who violate the law."
