Do you remember that Florida capped fees in medical negligence litigation? Severely? If not, see this post.
Well, lawyers for plaintiffs gave plaintiffs the opportunity to waive the cap. Certain members of the bar (most of them with connections to health care providers) asked the Florida Supreme Court to adopt a rule prohibiting lawyers from doing so. Arguments were heard on November 30. Read about the arguments here. Read the briefs and other documents cocerning the petition here.
