Florida Court Review highlights Florida cases as they come out. This isn’t a political site, so don’t expect raging criticism or zealous advocacy here. Judges explain their decisions in great detail, and publish them for the world to see. So the reader can decide whether they got it right or not. This blog is for anybody interested in what Florida’s appellate courts are doing.
We will do our best to highlight the opinions we think you’ll find interesting, keep you updated as opinions come out, translate Legalese into American English, and keep score with our own statistics.
Life’s too short to police even this small corner of the internet. I’ve seen Mozart videos on Youtube devolve into a septic tank in the comments. But I’m happy to hear from you. Please send comments to [email protected] Or share on social media. Twitter: @fla_ct_rev.

Keep in mind that the court opinions released daily are not final until the time for rehearing expires. In other words, the court can change its mind. We will not be regularly checking the dockets for rehearing motions. But we will do our best to update you if and when an opinion comes out on rehearing.
