Supreme Court of Florida
In Re: Amendments to Rules Regulating the Florida Bar-Chapters 6 and 21— (Per Curiam; FLSC; 2/2/23).
The Florida bar had asked the Supreme Court of Florida to amend several rules, most of which were minor technical changes. The one notable change is that the court has deleted the procedure for certification in antitrust and trade regulation. It is now impossible to pursue board certification for that area in Florida. The reason for this is that there have “not been any new applications for the certification for the past 12 years,” and Rule 6-3.14 provides for a sunset of certification areas if there is insufficient interest. Also, when the court sought public comment, there were zero comments.
