Under Florida law, to state a cause of action for breach of contract the plaintiff must allege: (1) the existence of a valid contract; (2) a material breach of the contract; and (3) damages. See Brooks Tropicals, Inc. v. Acosta, 959 So.2d 288, 292 (Fla. 3d DCA 2007); Barbara G. Banks, P.A. v. Thomas D. Lardin, P.A., 938 So.2d 571, 575 (Fla. 4th DCA 2006). For an oral contract to be valid, plaintiff must allege offer, acceptance and consideration. St. Joe Corp. v. McIver, 875 So.2d 375, 381 (Fla.2004).
