RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
RULES OF GENERAL PRACTICE AND JUDICIAL ADMINISTRATION--AMENDMENT--PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES--ACCOMMODATIONS. Rule 2.540 was amended to address the use of service and emotional support animals in the courts. In addition to providing definitions of service and emotional support animals, the newly amended rule provides that a failure to provide advance notification when an individual intends on seeking an accommodation of using a service animal will not preclude the use of the service animal. However, lack of advanced notification of an emotional support animal may result in the animal not being allowed.
RULES OF JUVENILE PROCEDURE--AMENDMENTS. The Court made amendments to rules 8.245 (Discovery), 8.250 (Examinations, Evaluation, and Treatment), and form 8.961(Shelter Order). The more significant amendments included a clarification regarding rule 8.245's applicability to electronic discovery, as well as an extension of time for the serving of a notice of the intent to serve a subpoena.
