Just a quick development on Kauffman: Claimant is seeking discretionary review to the Florida Supreme Court, as of March 30.  Her attorneys are writing briefs to the Court to convince them to hear the case. 

Keep in mind, the Supremes do not have to hear the case, but the Court does have the discretion to review a decision of a District Court of Appeal that expressly construes a provision of the state or federal consititution.   Once again, the Supremes do not have a duty to hear the case, just the option to hear it.

As you know, in the Kauffman decision, the First DCA denied Claimant’s constitutional arguments based on their previous decisions of the 2003 amendments to the fee provision of Chapter 440. 

I will provide more details as I understand them.
