RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
RULES OF APPELLATE PROCEDURE--AMENDMENT--ATTORNEY'S FEES. The Court amended rules 9.190, 9.400, and 9.440 as proposed by the Florida Bar's Appellate Court Rules Committee. The more significant amendments involved altering rule 9.190(d)'s stated requirements for the filing of motions for attorneys' fees in administrative appeals and seeking review of orders on such motions, and tying the deadline to file a motion for attorneys' fees in a discretionary review proceeding to the filing of the parties' jurisdictional briefs in rule 9.400(b).
RULES REGULATING THE FLORIDA BAR--AMENDMENT. The Court adopted proposed amendments to seventeen Rules Regulating The Florida Bar and one bylaw. Such amendments included a new subdivision to rule 1-3.5 explaining requirements for retired members of the Bar, and a revision of rule 1-3.7 which treats a failure to file a trust account compliance certification as an administrative delinquency. Additionally, a new subdivision (c)(7) was added to rule 4-1.6 to permit a lawyer to reveal confidential information to the extent the lawyer reasonably believes it necessary to "respond to specific allegations published via the internet by a former client that the lawyer has engaged in criminal conduct punishable by law."
