Alexander v. Quail Pointe II Condominium, ___ So. 3d ___, 40 Fla. L. Weekly D600 (Fla. 5th DCA March 6, 2015)
A plaintiff, who failed to make a timely request for trial de novo after mandatory nonbinding arbitration, was bound by the result even though the order of referral to arbitration was not substantially similar to the form order required in the circuit. The plaintiff was not entitled to relief from judgment because his lawyer’s ignorance of the deadline for requesting trial de novo did not constitute excusable neglect. In addition, the plaintiff invited any error by failing to object to the agreed order scheduling nonbinding arbitration.
