Social Media: Is it Discoverable?

March 30, 2015 Communications & Media Industry Legal Blog, Professional Services Industry Legal Blog

By: Brittany N. Snell, Esq. and Austin B. Calhoun, Esq.
Many people routinely document their lives through interactions on social media forums such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or some other social media site. With social media becoming more and more a part of our everyday lives, the content of social media has inevitably become valuable to litigation. While you may be shaking your head and agreeing with the relevancy of social media, when is the last time you included a social media request in your discovery requests? If you included this request, how specific was it? This blog post will explore the growing use of discovery requests to obtain vital information from social media.

Florida Statute Chapter 558: Changes are Brewing

March 23, 2015 Construction Industry Legal Blog

By: James O. Birr, III

Florida Statute Chapter 558 was adopted to serve as an alternative method to resolve construction and design disputes in order to reduce the need for litigation, while protecting the rights of property owners. While the nuances of Florida Statute Chapter 558 are outside the focus of this post, there are some proposed changes making their way through the Florida legislature. See House Bill 87 and Senate Bill 418. These changes include specific information to be included in the notice of claim, frivolous claims, sanctions, and the exchange of documents.

Why Community Associations Cannot Afford to Ignore Lender Foreclosure Actions – Part II

March 20, 2015 Community Association Industry Legal Blog

By Hans C. Wahl, Esq.

This blog post is part II in a series of posts discussing why community associations cannot afford to ignore lender foreclosure actions. The underlying theme of this series is that associations have a financial interest and lien rights in their properties and by ignoring lender foreclosure actions, associations are ignoring their own financial interests and main sources of revenue. Part I explained that associations have the power, under the Florida Statutes, to expedite the foreclosure process when lenders are delaying. Part I also illustrated that by implementing a consistent policy for appearing in lender foreclosure actions and expediting the legal proceedings, associations can save tens of thousands of dollars over the years. This blog post addresses the unclaimed revenue in the form of foreclosure sale proceeds that associations fail to capitalize on due to not appearing in lender foreclosure actions and asserting their priority lien rights.
