James Timko, a partner in Shutts & Bowen LLP’s Orlando office, was recently quoted in a Tampa Bay Times article on successfully obtaining relief for his client, the Receiver for the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence (the “Coalition”).
The article, titled “Florida coalition that paid CEO $7.5 million has its money taken over by receiver,” discusses the recent order signed by Judge Ronald Flury allowing the appointed receiver of the Coalition to potentially access up to $1.5 million of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence Foundation’s assets for the administration and support of domestic violence shelters throughout the state. James was quoted in the article to say that the new receivership “allows for financial stability of the Coalition and puts the Foundation to its intended use.” James worked with the Attorney General’s office to obtain this relief for his client.
