Practice Tips: Forget to put your client’s address in the judgement?

first_img March 1, 2004 Regular News Forget to put your client’s address in the judgement? James W. Martin A recent decision of the Second District Court of Appeal reminds Florida lawyers what happens when a lawyer fails to put the client’s address in a final judgment: Recording a certified copy does not make it a lien on real property. Even including the attorney’s address in the judgment does not help. It must be the client’s address.In Tomalo v. Kingsley Displays, Inc., 2003 Fla. App. LEXIS 19266;29 Fla. L. Weekly D 12 (Fla. 2d DCA Case No. 2D02-5702, December 19, 2003), the judgment did not include Kingsley’s address, but it did include Kingsley’s name followed by “c/o” and the address of its lawyer. The court said that this did not satisfy the requirement of F.S. §55.10(1). This statute is the one that says a lien on real property is created when a certified copy of the judgment is recorded in the county in which the land is located. The statute also states that, “A judgment…does not become a lien on real estate unless the address of the person. . . is contained in the judgment. . . or an affidavit with such address is simultaneously recorded.” The court held that the statute specifically required the judgment holder’s address, so the attorney’s address did not satisfy the statute.The court cited similar cases reaching similar results in the First and Fourth districts ( Hott Interiors, Inc. v. Fostock, 721 So. 2d 1236, 1238 (Fla. 4th DCA 1998), and Robinson v. Sterling Door & Window Co., 698 So. 2d 570, 571 (Fla. 1st DCA 1997)). Thus, it appears that this simple error of not including the client’s address in a judgment is one that is common throughout the state and is one that has potentially serious consequences.In the Tomalo case, Kingsley’s judgment was recorded a year before Tomalo’s judgment, but the court found that Kingsley’s judgment did not create a valid lien on real property due to its failure to include Kingsley’s address, so Tomalo won. We can all learn from that lesson: Put your client’s name and address on the judgment, not just your address. James W.

Real Madrid take on Espanyol in La Liga

first_imgMadrid, Feb 17: Real Madrid have the chance to further extend their lead at the top of the La Liga on Saturday which promises to be decisive in the outcome of the title race. Real entertain Espanyol in the Santiago Berbeu Stadium before travelling to play one of the two games they have in hand over their title rivals in Valencia on Wednesday.Saturday’s game comes on the back of Madrid’s 3-1 win at home over poli in which they played some of their best football of the year to come back from a goal down.And Real coach Zinedine Zidane will probably make some changes to his starting 11 with players such as Matteo Kovecic, Isco and cho Ferndez in with the chance of starting, reports Xinhua news agency.The big news for Saturday is the likely return of Welsh forward Gareth Bale to action after almost three months out with an ankle injury. Bale is unlikely to start the game, but will probably be introduced as a substitute sometime in the second half.Espanyol have traditiolly been a comfortable rival for Real Madrid and last season saw them beaten 6-0 at home and away to the league leaders.However, they have toughened up considerably under Quique Sanchez Flores and after a slow start to the season have an outside chance of qualifying for Europe next season.Gerard Moreno is a handful in attack, while former Valencia winger Pablo Piatti is usually at the heart of their best moves and has been involved in half of their goals this season, either scoring them himself, or supplying the fil pass.Meanwhile former Real Madrid goalkeeper Diego Lopez is assured of a warm reception on his return to the Berbeu, although most Madrid fans will be expecting to see him pick the ball out of the net on more than one occasion.
