Representative Experience

Putnam Centre Associates v. Putnam Community Bingo, Inc. et. al. – Putnam County Clerk of Court No. CA09-895 – Represented Commercial Tenant against a claim of a breach of lease at the trial and appellate level. The Plaintiff sought over $450,000.00 in lost rent and damages and sought to find the Defendant’s owners personally liable. The claim ultimately hinged on a roof leak, where the Plaintiff alleged that the leak originated in an air conditioning unit located on the roof and was therefore the Tenants responsibility pursuant to the commercial lease. We obtained a complete Defense verdict at trial, showing that the Landlords negligent repairs to the adjoining unit’s roof was to blame for the leaks to the Defendant’s unit. Plaintiffs were obligated to pay attorney’s fees and costs to Defendants. Plaintiff appealed, and the Fifth District Court of Appeals, after briefing and appellate mediation, affirmed the trial court’s Defense verdict (5D17-472).

Ben’s Auto Marine Supply, Inc. v. St. Johns Autobody, et. al. – Volusia County Clerk of Court No. 2013-31370-CICI – Represented Defendant against breach of contract at the trial and appellate level. The Plaintiff brought a claim seeking six figure damages related to the termination of a contract for paint for an auto body shop. In trial the Plaintiff was unable to show standing to enforce the contract, as Plaintiff’s counsel had established several related entities to shield them from liability. Fortunately for the defense, the plaintiff and the contracting party were not the same entity, and therefore the Court found for the Defense and entered a complete defense verdict. The Plaintiff appealed to the Fifth District Court of Appeal, who after briefing and oral argument, denied the Plaintiff’s appeal (5D18-2352).

Key Beach North v. City of St. Augustine Beach, St. Johns County Clerk No. CA18-815 – Represented the Municipality in the original proceeding, at the trial level, and at the appellate level. Key Beach filed an application to build an accessory structure to its beachfront hotel in St. Augustine Beach. Our firm represented the City Commission during the application process. The Commission voted to deny Key Beach’s application based primarily on aesthetics. Key Beach filed a Writ of Mandamus and alternatively a Writ of Certiorari with the Circuit Court in St. Johns County. We represented the City at the Circuit Court level. The Circuit Court judge, after extensive briefing and argument, denied Key Beach’s writs. Key Beach then appealed the matter to Florida’s Fifth District Court of Appeal, who after briefing denied Key Beach’s appeal (5D19-2489). The Court ruled in the City’s favor because it was found that the City had complied with the Due Process requirements of the law and that Florida Municipalities are afforded discretion in the underlying hearing.
