RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
FLORIDA PROBATE RULES--AMENDMENT--FORMS RELATED TO INJUNCTION FOR PROTECTION AGAINST EXPLOITATION OF VULNERABLE ADULT. The Court added a new rule 5.920 (Forms Related to Injunction for Protection Against Exploitation of a Vulnerable Adult) to the Florida Probate Rules. The new rule is in response to legislation which established an injunction process for vulnerable adults.
TORTS--MASS SHOOTINGS--SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY--WAIVER--STATUTORY CAP ON LIABILITY. Negligence and wrongful death claims brought against the Department of Children and Families, which stemmed from a mass shooting perpetrated by an individual who had previously been reported to DCF for domestic abuse, arose out of the "same incident or occurrence." As such, the cumulative liability for all of the claims of injury resulting from the incident could not exceed the aggregate cap of $200,000 set forth in section 768.28(5), Florida Statutes.
