Can you guess my mood today?
Let's just do this:
Salazar v. Coello:
Big reversal of a med-mal sj based on a complicated reading of the pre-suit notice requirements.
Lots of confessions of errors.
The 3d makes a (big) mistake.
(Turns out it's illegal to discriminate against pregnant women after all.)
Judge Shepherd delivers a massive, epic bench slap:
It has long been said in the courts of this state that “every litigant is entitled to nothing less than the cold neutrality of an impartial judge.” State ex rel. Davis v. Parks, 194 So. 613, 615 (Fla. 1939). Regrettably, the trial judge in this case has abandoned his post as a neutral overseer of the dispute between the parties, compelling us to grant Great American Insurance Company’s Petition for a Writ of Prohibition.Happy holidays!
