Bryan Gowdy and Dimitrios Peteves represented the Florida Justice Association and wrote an amicus curiae brief supporting the Respondent in a recent Supreme Court of Florida case, Weston Insurance Company v. Riverside Club Condominium Association, Inc. In their brief, Mr. Gowdy and Mr. Peteves argued that it was not improper for the trial court to order an appraisal of Hurricane Irma property damage to the Riverside Club before the trial court could make a decision about Weston's' insurance coverage. This case has implications for decisions at the appellate court level, as there is a disagreement between district courts on whether an appraisal is needed before the trial court can rule on insurance coverage issues.
