Judge asked to decide fate of North Dakota’s caller ID anti-spoofing law

A New Jersey-based company that sells caller ID spoofing services and the state of North Dakota are asking a federal judge to decide the fate of North Dakota’s new anti-spoofing law.

Attorneys for both sides have filed motions in U.S. District Court asking the judge to decide the case based on their arguments, rather than on a trial.

The decision will fall to new U.S. District Judge Dan Traynor, who took the bench in January, replacing Judge Daniel Hovland, who has moved into semiretirement. Traynor took over the case from Hovland in early February.
