Well, now I just received this transcript and order that states that the courts in Lee County do not have to comply with another Rule of Civil Procedure…
First from the transcript…
DEFENSE: Yes, judge. In all due respect, I did not disobey your order (for not setting motion to dismiss for hearing). We got got back to the office and discovered that they have no recorded activity for over 12 months, they’ve been served with the notice for lack of prosecution.
I can not comply with your court order without — bailing out the bank is what I would say, and I think my tax paying dollars have done enough of that.
COURT: Set it for trial.
DEFENSE: We are not at issue.
COURT: We are now.
DEFENSE: Judge, we can’t be at issue.
DEFENSE: In all due respect, you want me to set this down to strike that motion–
COURT: I don’t know what you’re going to do, but nobody is going to do anything, so the only — so if nobody is going to do anything, I’m deeming all other pleadings waived and set it for trial.
They won’t do anything, you won’t do anything, so that leaves me.
DEFENSE: Judge, there is case law right on point, Leeds versus C.C. Chemical. It says that you’re not allowed to put it on a docket, first of all. It’s error if you do so if you’re not at issue.
COURT: I’m saying you’re at issue by virtue of the fact that nobody has done anything and nobody is willing to do anything and the court is declaring you at issue and setting it for trial.
DEFENSE: I understand. Thank you, Judge
Court: They know me by my work up there.
DEFENSE: We must be talking about the Second district.
Now from the order…
The court determines that the case has not moved forward for over 10 months and, for that reason, this court elects to set this matter to the next trial docket.
Ordered and Adjudged:
Defendants Motion to Dismiss is waived by the court;
This matter is hereby set for trial Feb, 22, 2011. Lee County is not requiring compliance with Fla. R. Civ P 1.440 and does not consider the holding in Leeds v. C. C. Chemical Corp., 280 So. 2d 718 (Fla. 3rd DCA 1973) controlling in foreclosure matters.
Done and Ordered
