«PNR, INC. v. BEACON PROPERTY MANAGEMENT, INC. No. SC01-1507. Email | Print | Comments (0) 842 So.2d 773 (2003) PNR, INC., Petitioner, v. BEACON ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

I have seriously considered the majority's footnote 2 in light of the facts alleged in this case. I continue to conclude that what is set forth in the majority opinion as the facts of this case are, in sum, a breach of a lease contract. I do not see how the district courts or the trial courts are to differentiate between which breach of lease cases state a claim under FDUTPA and which do not. I continue my concern that the practical effect of this decision will be to convert every breach of lease claim into a claim under FDUTPA, though I read footnote 2 to mean that this is not what the majority intends.

HARDING, Senior Justice, dissenting.

HARDING, Senior Justice, dissenting.

I would discharge jurisdiction as having been improvidently granted. I do not find any conflict which would sustain this court's retaining jurisdiction.

WELLS, J., concurs.


1. See Samuels v. King Motor Co. of Fort Lauderdale, 782 So.2d 489, 499 (Fla. 4th DCA 2001) (reversing trial court's dismissal of a FDUTPA claim stemming from a single automobile purchase); Davich v. Norman Bros. Nissan, Inc., 739 So.2d 138, 141 (Fla. 5th DCA 1999) (vacating summary judgment on a FDUTPA claim based on a single transaction in which an automobile dealer allegedly concealed damage to the paint finish of a car purchased by the plaintiff); Suris v. Gilmore Liquidating, Inc., 651 So.2d 1282, 1283 (Fla. 3d DCA 1995) (reversing a directed verdict on a FDUTPA claim stemming from a single transaction in which the dealer allegedly misrepresented the price of the car being sold and the value of the consumer's trade-in); Urling v. Helms Exterminators, Inc., 468 So.2d 451, 453-54 (Fla. 1st DCA 1985) (reversing a directed verdict on a FDUTPA claim based on a single transaction in which a termite inspector allegedly phoned in a single false inspection report).

2. Contrary to the position articulated in the dissenting opinion of Justice Wells, this opinion does not operate to convert every breach of contract or breach of lease case into a claim under the Act. Indeed, such a construction would be precluded by the FDUTPA, which only reaches conduct that is unfair or deceptive as judged by controlling case law. To the extent an action giving rise to a breach of contract or breach of lease may also constitute an unfair or deceptive act, such a claim is and has always been cognizable under the FDUTPA. Our holding today merely remands the case to the district court for consideration under appropriate law and changes nothing with regard to such issue.
