The bunker mates recently conferred a lifetime achievement award on Judge Schwartz for authoring or participating in nearly every 3d DCA opinion for the last gazillion years:
Congratulations Judge and may the Schwartz always be with us!Dedication to Judge Alan R. Schwartz
On July 11, 2013, the Court honored Judge Alan R. Schwartz by presenting to him Volume 111 So. 3d., dedicated to him for his extensive work both as a lawyer and a judge. As of the date of publication, Judge Schwartz has authored more than 2,000 opinions, which span over 1,000 volumes in the Southern Reporter.
In other news, there were some written utterances:
Alderwoods Group v. Garcia:
The trial court certified a class of lost dead people at a local cemetery.
Guess what happened next!
HSBC v. Williams:
So a little bank foreclosed on a homeowner but didn't comply with discovery orders. Fees and costs to homeowner upheld.
Chase v. Sarmiento:
So another little bank foreclosed on a homeowner in 2009 and then forgot all about it for a while. Failure to prosecute dismissal reversed:
The record reflects that Chase timely filed multiple filings with the trial court after it received the June 14, 2012, notice for failure to prosecute. Such record activity is sufficient to preclude dismissal.Yeah, why the rush?
Publix v. Santos:
A customer at Publix slipped and fell on "old wet spinach or some other transitory substance."
Oops -- so that's where I left it -- my bad.
