On April 29, 2021, the Florida Supreme Court agreed to largely replace the text of Florida’s summary judgment rule with that of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 56. The amendment was a victory for WLF, which, in formal comments to the Court, argued that the amendment promotes consistency, stability, and predictability in the law by harmonizing state and federal standards in Florida. WLF’s comment was drafted with the pro bono assistance of Mark Behrens at Shook, Hardy & Bacon LLP.
