Supreme Court of Florida. Pratt v. Weiss, 161 So. 3d 1268 (Fla. 2015).
We previously affirmed a trial court order, in which the trial court found an
offer of judgment complied with the requirements of section 768.79, Florida
Statutes (2004). The supreme court has now quashed our decision and held that
the offer failed to comply with section 768.79 and rule 1.442 of the Florida
Rules of Civil Procedure. For the reasons expressed in the supreme court’s
decision, we now reverse the trial court order and remand the case for further
and Remanded. (GROSS and DAMOORGIAN, JJ., concur.)
