Saturday morning case law

2013 is not panning out as a great case law year thus far:  

We don’t split babies in Florida. In re T.B., — So.3d —-, 2013 WL 561489
(Fla. 2nd DCA 2013) (citing § 39.521(4), Fla. Stat. (2012) (“An agency granted legal custody shall have the right to determine where and with whom the child shall live, but an individual granted legal custody shall exercise all rights and duties personally unless otherwise ordered by the court.”)).

You need evidence for a finding of dependency. R.S. v. Department of Children and Families, — So.3d —-, 2013 WL 557023 (Fla. 5th DCA 2013) (“Without taking any evidence, the trial court entered an adjudication that DCF had proven by a preponderance of the evidence that the child was dependent.”).
