Cheating Husband's Suit Against Florist Dismissed

OnPoint reports that Judge Nancy F. Atlas of the S.D. of Texas has dismissed the suit filed by Leroy Greer against 1-800-Flowers for damages and "mental anguish" because the florist inadvertently disclosed Greer's extramarital affair to his wife.   (Prior post here).    Judge Atlas found that the company's terms of use included a valid forum selection clause designating New York courts as the proper forum.   A copy of the decision is available here.  According to OnPoint, Greer's attorney, Kennitra Foote, stated that they will re-file in New York "in the next couple weeks."

Stay tuned.

Thanks to Ted Frank at Overlawyered for the update.

Sadly, this and future bits of the process won't appear in the German tabloids so happy to sell rags by fueling folklore about Americans.
