A good read on an important topic: my Public Policy Group colleagues Chris Appel and Mark Behrens recently published an article in the latest ABA TIPS section magazine, The Brief, titled “Florida Supreme Court Leads on Apex Doctrine.” Vol. 51, No.2 (Winter 2022), The article discusses a recent amendment to the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, adopted by the Florida Supreme Court on its own motion, to shield corporate officers from abusive discovery.

Our readers may find  the article to be of interest.
