FLORIDA CASE LAW UPDATES
CASTELLANOS V. REVERSE MORTG., 3D20-472 (Fla. 3d DCA May 12, 2021)
The Third District ruled that to the extent its decision in Suchman Corp. Park, Inc. v. Greenstein holds that, as matter of law, the reciprocity provision of section 57.105(7), Florida Statutes cannot apply to authorize an award of attorney’s fees to a prevailing borrower on an underlying nonrecourse loan (because the borrower under such a loan would have no personal liability for those fees), such a holding has been implicitly overruled by the supreme court’s recent decision in Page v. Deutsche Bank Tr. Co. Ams. The Court remanded the case for the trial court to enter an order finding the prevailing borrower was entitled to fees under section 57.105(7) and for further proceedings.
