Bart Valdes


Hon. Ralph Artligliere

Judicial Chair

The Task Force is working on a proposed amendment to Rule 1.010 adding language relating to the “just, speedy and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding” to be consistent with the 2015 amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.  The Task Force is also looking at additional proposals in regard to the case management rules and how to address the absence of a meet and confer requirement in discovery disputes and in regard to non-dispositive motions.  This includes proposing potential amendments to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure to adopt language similar to, or patterned after, parts of Rule 26(g) and Rule 34 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
