3d DCA Watch: New Year Edition!

Like Pavlov's dog, the clock strikes 10:30 am and, salivating, we rush to ensconce ourselves in the latest pronouncements from the bunker.

All one of them.
As to the third issue on appeal, Vita asserts that the trial court lacked jurisdiction over Vita's wife, and therefore erred by including her in the Payment Order as if she were a defendant. We agree. Because Kimberly Vita was never named in the lawsuit and never received service of process, the trial court did not acquire jurisdiction to enter a judgment against her.
Jurisdiction, smurisdiction. I am a trial judge! Can't you see my black robe?!

Until next week.
