Holding: The Telephone Consumer Protection Act’s grant of jurisdiction to state courts does not deprive the federal district courts of federal-question jurisdiction over private lawsuits seeking to enforce the Act.

Plain English Holding: The fact that a federal law, the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, allows lawsuits to be brought in state courts to enforce the Act does not strip federal courts of the ability to hear such cases as well.

Plain English Summary:

Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on January 18, 2012.
