Two appeals, two affirmances, all in less than 24 hours

Barron & Redding attorneys Michael P. Dickey and Jeffrey S. Carter scored wins in back-to-back oral arguments before the First District Court of Appeals last week. Mike appeared on behalf of a regional college accreditation association, defending a summary judgment that denied an attempt to obtain access to records under the Florida Public Records Act. Jeff appeared on behalf of a creditor defending a ruling that provided attorneys’ fees in a judgment lien foreclosure. The panel of the First DCA convened for oral argument in Panama City, and the Barron & Redding cases were two of the three set for argument. Less than 24 hours after oral argument, the First DCA entered orders affirming both trial court judgments.
