Fort Lauderdale attorney Deedee Bitran was recently published in the Florida Bar’s Business Law Section Blog.
Bitran’s article, "Navigating Proposals for Settlement When a Complaint Seeks Monetary & Non-Monetary Relief," highlights a gap in Florida law as to whether proposals for settlement can be utilized in cases seeking monetary and non-monetary relief. Florida law is unclear as to whether a proposal for settlement can be used when a complaint alleges a breach of contract claim (a monetary claim) along with separate claims for declaratory relief or injunctive relief (non-monetary claims). Bitran’s article advises that this gap presents a unique opportunity “for litigators to do what they do best: take a side, argue it, and shape Florida law.”
