Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.442
This rule was amended to reconcile, where possible, sections(formerly 44.102(5)(b)), , , and , Florida Statutes, and the decisions of the Florida Supreme Court in Knealing v. Puleo, 675 So. 2d 593 (Fla. 1996), TGI Friday's, Inc. v. Dvorak, 663 So. 2d 606 (Fla. 1995), and Timmons v. Combs, 608 So. 2d 1 (Fla. 1992). This rule replaces former rule 1.442, which was repealed by the Timmons decision, and supersedes those sections of the Florida Statutes and the prior decisions of the court, where reconciliation is impossible, in order to provide a workable structure for proposing settlements in civil actions. The provision which requires that a joint proposal state the amount and terms attributable to each party is in order to conform with Fabre v. Marin, 623 So. 2d 1182 (Fla. 1993).
Subdivision (f)(2) was added to establish the time for acceptance of proposals for settlement in class actions. "Filing" is defined in rule. Subdivision (g) is amended to conform with new rule .
Subdivision (c)(2)(G) is amended to reflect the relocation of the service rule from ruleto Fla. R. Jud. Admin. .
Subdivision (f)(1) was amended to reflect the relocation of the rule regarding additional time after service by mail or e-mail from ruleto Fla. R. Jud. Admin. .
Subdivision (c)(2)(B) is amended to clarify that a proposal for settlement must resolve all claims between the proponent and the party to whom the proposal is made except claims for attorneys' fees, which may or may not be resolved in the proposal.
