Florida Federal Judge Allows TCPA Claims To Proceed In Florida

Mealey's (August 16, 2016, 1:09 PM EDT) -- WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — A Florida federal judge on Aug. 11 denied a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction a putative class action alleging that an out-of-state defendant sent unwanted text message advertisements to a Florida resident, saying the plaintiff adequately states a claim of violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) for the messages sent to the state (Brian Keim, et al. v. ADF Midatlantic LLC, et al., No. 12-80577, S.D. Fla.; 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 106300).
