RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
FAMILY LAW RULES OF PROCEDURE--AMENDMENTS. The Court approved proposed amendments of Florida Family Law Rule of Procedure 12.410 (Subpoena). "[W]ith these amendments, the language of the rule now matches the text of Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.410 (Subpoena), which does not require notice of a subpoena to be served on each party to a proceeding on the same day of service."
RULES FOR QUALIFIED AND COURT-APPOINTED PARENTING COORDINATORS--AMENDMENT. With minor technical changes, the Court adopted amendments to the Florida Rules for Qualified and Court-Appointed Parenting Coordinators proposed by the Supreme Court Committee on Alternative Dispute Rules and Policy. The current rules were reorganized, and new rules were adopted. A new Part IV (Operating Procedures) and organizing new rule 15.400 (Authority) were included in the amendments.
CRIMINAL LAW--SENTENCING--CONSIDERATIONS--LACK OF REMORSE. The trial court did not err in its consideration of the defendant's failure to take responsibility when imposing a statutory maximum sentence. Because the defendant waived his right to remain silent by voluntarily choosing to allocute at his sentencing hearing, the trial court was permitted to consider the defendant's freely offered statements, including those indicating a failure to accept responsibility.
