More Coverage on the New Complex Litigation Rule 1.201 (Florida Bar News)

In this article on Rule 1.201, the Florida Bar News highlights a few of the changes included in the new complex litigation rule.

And also highlights the opinions of those who opposed the rule change:

The three dissenting justices sided with the Bar’s Rules of Civil Procedure Committee, which unanimously opposed the complex litigation rule, saying it would “micromanage cases” and the goals the rule seeks to accomplish can be found, for the most part, in existing rules. A minority of the task force — led by First District Court of Appeal Judge Peter Webster — also opposed the rule saying the creation of complex litigation divisions has the potential of “skimming the cream from the top of our available judicial labor pool” and could create the “impression that some litigants are getting more justice from the system than are others.”
