Editor's Note :

In previous years, the Court released orders the morning after the Court’s “Long Conference.” It has not done so this year. Beginning last Term, the Court consistently considered petitions at least two times before granting certiorari. To the extent that practice continues -- and there is no affirmative evidence the Court intends to drop it -- so we are again doubtful that certiorari will be granted in any cases today.

Mims v. Arrow Financial Services, LLC

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
10-1195 11th Cir. Nov 28, 2011
Tr.Aud.
Jan 18, 2011 9-0 Ginsburg OT 2011

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.

Judgment: Reversed and remanded, 9-0, in an opinion by Justice Ginsburg on January 18, 2011.
