Huckabee must face movie telemarketing lawsuit: U.S. appeals court

Republican presidential hopeful Huckabee addresses attendees during an economic summit hosted by Florida Gov. Rick Scott in OrlandoA U.S. appeals court revived a lawsuit accusing Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee and others of violating telemarketing laws by sending millions of prerecorded phone messages to advertise the 2012 movie “Last Ounce of Courage.” In a 3-0 decision on Monday, the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis said a lower court judge erred in dismissing claims by Ron and Dorit Golan under the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act and Missouri’s “do not call” law, in their proposed $5 million class action lawsuit. Huckabee and the movie’s producers and marketers were sued over a campaign in which Huckabee, who was then a host on the Fox News Channel, pitched “Last Ounce of Courage,” about the son of a fallen soldier, in calls to 34 million residential phone lines and cell phones.
