Florida Supreme Court Reverses Judge Shepherd and Reinstates Tire Kingdom Class Action!

 Big win for talented appellate specialist Steve Rosenthal:
We have for review Tire Kingdom, Inc. v. Dishkin, et al., 81 So. 3d 437 (Fla. 3d DCA 2011), which is in express and direct conflict with this Court’s decision in Sosa v. Safeway Premium Finance Co., 73 So. 3d 91 (Fla. 2011). We quash the decision of the Third District Court of Appeal in Dishkin with instructions to remand to the Circuit Court of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida for further proceedings consistent with this Court’s decision in Sosa.
Justice Canady, true to form, had a six-page dissent saying Wal-Mart changed everything (and not just on finding decent salmon or buying big screen TVs).

Another pricey loss for GT.

With GT, if it is pricey, it is not a loss. Their clients don't care what they do.

I have commented in my own blog how our Third District has trouble affirming any class certification.

The Florida Supreme Court just slapped the Third for refusal to follow its decisions.Isn't that the same thing that the Third went after Milt Hirsch for?

Shepard & Rottenberg hate all plaintiffs.
