Verizon Wireless wins 2 cases against telemarketers

Judges in New Jersey and California banned a telemarketer from using autodialers or pre-recorded messages in calls to the carrier's subscribers. The carrier said its 49.3 million customers nationwide were protected by the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act and state laws prohibiting such calls to mobile handsets.
