U.S. Supreme Court rules that claims against telemarketers can be pursued in state or federal court system

It was a surprise to no one this week when the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Congress meant what it said when it passed the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, allowing abused citizens to file suit against the makers of nuisance telephone calls.   The Defendant in Mims v. Arrow Financial Services had argued that the legislation did not allow suit to be brought in a federal court.  The Court's opinion held that there was "nothing in the text, structure, purpose or legislative history" of the act to warrant the Defendant's argument.
