3d DCA Watch: Extraordinary Writ Edition!

Sorry so late. I had to pull back a tad from my pre-July 4 festivities to cobble together a few words. Apparently, I am not the only one.

Let's get to it.

A pro se criminal Writ of Habeas Corpus:
...the Clerk of the Court of the Third District Court of Appeal shall refuse to accept further pro se filings related to case number 94-37277; Any such further and unauthorized pro se filings by Weaver will subject him to sanctions, including the issuance of written findings forwarded to the Florida Department of Corrections for consideration by it for disciplinary action
We put that one in the "be careful what you ask for" category. I wish the 3d would serve some of that up to the lawyers-behaving-badly (you know who you are.)

A dependency case Writ of Certiorari:
Accordingly, we quash the order of the trial court insofar as it limits the father’s ability to seek future contacts solely to the discretion of the children.
I don't know: feels like Judge Figarola was onto something...let the kids decide.

I'll see your Writ of Certiorari and raise you a Writ of Certiorari:
Based on this Court’s narrow standard of review in a second tier certiorari proceeding, we must deny the petition.
Last but not least, a Writ of Certiorari quashing the appellate division of the 11th Judicial Circuit Court, Judges Mindy S. Glazer, Cristina Miranda, Nushin G. Sayfie:
We therefore grant the petition for writ of certiorari and quash the decision of the circuit court appellate division denying Virtual Imaging’s motion for an award of entitlement to appellate attorney’s fees. We further remand to the appellate division for entry of an order conditionally granting Virtual Imaging’s motion for appellate attorney's fees.
Exhausting, right?
