The Points Guy LLC must face an American Airlines Group Inc. suit over an app allowing users to track frequent flyer miles from all carriers in one place, a federal judge in Texas ruled.

US District Judge Mark T. Pittman on Friday denied Points Guy’s motion to dismiss the case as improperly filed in federal court in Fort Worth, where American is headquartered. Pittman said the venue was appropriate because a “substantial part of the events giving rise to American’s claims occurred in this district.”
