RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE--AMENDMENT. The Court adopted proposed amendments to Rule 1.070 (Process) and Rule 1.650 (Medical Malpractice Presuit Screening Rule). "The amendments implement changes to chapters 48 and 766, Florida Statutes, made by chapter 2022-190, Laws of Florida, which took effect on January 2, 2023."
FIREARMS--REGULATION--STATE PREEMPTION--LOCAL GOVERNMENTS AND OFFICIALS--IMMUNITY. The common law doctrines of legislative immunity and governmental function immunity do not prohibit the statutory civil actions and penalties imposed against local governments and officials for certain violations of section 790.33, Florida Statutes (2021). By expressly preempting the field of firearms and ammunition regulation, the Legislature deprived local governments and officials of any authority or discretion to contravene, exceed, or evade the Legislature's regulation of this field.
