Citation: Keim v. ADF MidAtlantic, LLC, 199 F. Supp. 3d 1362 (S.D. Fla. 2016)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Southern District of Florida (S.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: Kenneth A. Marra

Plaintiff brought a class action suit pursuant to the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) against Pizza Hut franchisees for using text-message marketing companies to promote their products. Defendants challenged for lack of personal jurisdiction.


The Court denied Defendants’ motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction. The text-messaging companies, acting on behalf of Defendants, made targeted communications into the state of Florida, subjecting Defendants to personal jurisdiction under Florida’s long-arm statute. Additionally, the Court conducted a three-part test and determined that specific personal jurisdiction met due process requirements.
