In an article recently published by the Jacksonville Daily Record, Gunster Shareholder Megan Moon, who serves on the Jacksonville Bar Association Young Lawyers Section Board of Governors, discusses the broad implications posed by the Florida Telephone Solicitation Act (FTSA). Dubbed Florida’s “Mini TCPA,” the FTSA resembles the Federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA), though it places tighter restrictions on companies’ telemarketing to Florida consumers.
Moon advises that companies should be proactive in mitigating risks posed by the FTSA. “If you have clients who utilize text messages for marketing consumer goods or services, they may be at risk under Florida’s new FTSA. The cases filed to date have run the gamut from large consumer corporations with massive marketing campaigns to local suppliers, medical offices and even restaurants,” she explains.
Megan Moon joined Gunster in 2013, after graduating second in her class from the University of Florida Levin College of Law. Megan is a shareholder and member of the Business Litigation and E-Discovery practice groups, where she focuses her practice on complex commercial litigation, including contract disputes, professional liability defense, employment disputes and torts defense, as well as governmental affairs and telecommunications litigation. She is also skilled in assisting clients with electronic discovery, document review management and data organization and collection.
