Bryan Gowdy Argues to the Florida Supreme Court on the Summary Judgment Standard

Bryan Gowdy orally argued the case of Wilsonart LLC et al. v. Lopez, Case No. SC19-1336, in which the Florida Supreme Court is considering whether to change the state's summary judgment standard. Mr. Gowdy argued that, under principles of textualism, originalism, and stare decisis, the Court could not change the standard in a judicial case. He further argued that the Court could change the standard only under its legislative rule-making authority, but that it should first ask the civil rules committee to consider any proposed change, just as the Court has done for seventy-five years.
