What the Florida Supreme Court won’t be hearing

The Florida Supreme Court denied cert in three cases this week. If anyone has any more information about them, I would greatly appreciate it.

  • T.Y.C. v. DCF – A case from the Second that has done a lot of bouncing around. First there was an untimely appeal in June 2011. Then I assume a writ was granted in the trial court, but it appears that the appeal wasn’t prosecuted in September. Then cert was denied by the Supreme Court in November and again now in January. I’m going to guess pro se
  • T.H. v. DCF – Most likely the ineffective assistance of counsel case that I was so excited about. It’s not clear if the evidentiary hearing was held before Judge Robinson or if the father tried to go right to the Supreme Court. Either way: no luck this time. 
  • J.B. v. DCF – An appeal from a citation opinion out of the Fifth, citing to In re E.R., 49 So.3d 846 (Fla. 2d 2010), which is an 18-page opinion with at least six holdings according to Westlaw. The Fifth could have at least dropped a page number in there so we have some clue as to what part of E.R. it found so convincing.
