The State of Missouri has just recently obtained a preliminary injunction against Sirius XM Radio to prevent the company from telemarketing to Missouri residents who had placed their names on the State’s “do not call” list (as opposed to the Federal Trade Commission list). Missouri v. Sirius XM Radio, Inc., Mo. Cir. Ct., No. 1022-CC10965.

Note: The following states continue to maintain separate do not call registries: Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
