Has there been an update since September 14? My trial is approaching and Citizens' immunity is a big issue since they now agreed to pay the claims seven years after Hurricane Ivan but nothing else! Should I wait for the FL Supreme Court to rule or take my chances when Citizens appeals a jury verdict?

John, I have not checked recently. Check the cases out, as I am sure you will, with Shepard's or with Keycite (or both).

I cannot and will not give legal advice. However, in general terms:

1. If you do not continue to raise an issue in the Trial Court, even if the Trial Judge has already ruled on it before Trial, then you may face an appellate court refusing to review it as 'abandoned' or 'waived'.

2. If the Trial Judge has already ruled on your issue, bring your toothbrush.

3. Be prepared to appeal if it is in the best interests of your client.

Best wishes,
Dennis Wall
