Florida Supreme Court Clarifies You Do Not Get Five Extra Days When Responding To A Proposal For Settlement

The Florida Supreme Court issued THIS opinion today and amended the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure to clarify that the additional five days allowed to respond to a filing/pleading served by email or mail does not apply when the pleading/email is a proposal for settlement. Therefore, a party has thirty days to respond to a proposal for settlement (not thirty-five).
