In Litigation, News & Updates

Ed Guedes will discuss the forthcoming new summary judgment standard in Florida during a Collier County Bar Association Trial Law Section webinar on Jan. 14 at noon. His presentation will discuss how in response to and on the heels of its decision in Wilsonart, LLC v. Lopez, SC19-1336, the Florida Supreme Court amended Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.510 to expressly adopt the summary judgment standard used by federal courts as articulated in Celotex v. Catrett, 477 U.S. 317 (1986), and other federal cases.

Ed is a board certified appellate attorney who has been involved in the Wilsonart case. He will discuss the case and rule amendment, provide a primer on the differences between Celotex and the Florida current standard, and offer insight on what adopting the Celotex standard will look like in future cases.
