Click here for a PDF copy of the Agenda and related Reports/White Papers for the upcoming meeting of the Florida Bar’s Probate & Trust Litigation Committee at the Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne on Friday, September 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.  Any questions/comments regarding the meeting and the linked-to materials should be directed to the committee chair: William ("Bill") T. Hennessey.

Bill’s email below povides greater detail on the focus of the upcoming meeting:

At the meeting, we will, once again, focus on the spousal rights legislation with the hope that we can pass a final version at the meeting or, at least, move closer in that direction. I have included in the package written comments which I have received from Joel Sharp and Edward Downey. Eric Virgil will also continue his presentation on motions to tax fees and costs in estate and trust proceedings.

We have added a new segment- a case law update- which will be presented at this meeting by Tattiana Brenes-Stahl. I would like a volunteer to present the case law update for our next meeting in Tallahassee. If you are interested, please let me know. Tattiana will be circulating her materials by separate e-mail (or bringing them to the meeting).

For those of you who cannot make it in person, shame on you. The call-in number is 866 – 411 – 5140 Conference ID 69655328. While you are on the telephone, please no eating, typing, yelling at your secretary, or making unnecessary noises in the background. I kindly request that you place your line on mute when you are not speaking. I will try to bring our speakers closer to the phone.

Look forward to seeing you in Key Biscayne. Many thanks.
