Florida Affirmative Defenses and Procedural Objections guides practitioners on the use, pleading, and application of defenses and procedural objections in Florida state civil cases. In particular, the book surveys common and useful defensive motions and procedural objections to be made during the pleading phase of a case. Further, the book examines and discusses various affirmative defenses, including pleading requirements, jury concerns, and notable authority on each defense.

The book provides the practitioner with useful forms for each defense, which are available in MS Word on a CD-ROM so they can be edited to suit the unique facts and circumstances of each case.

More than 50 pages of new material, including more than 130 new citations and authorities. This edition adds new defenses—including vicarious liability, the Faragher/Ellerth vicarious liability defenses, and the voluntary payment document—as well as new analysis and sections on collateral estoppel, condition precedent (e.g., distinguishing conditions precedent to formation of a contract and to enforcement of a contract), statutes of limitation (e.g., the continuing violation and continuing tort doctrines, the relation-back doctrine), and the implied waiver doctrine
