GrayRobinson's Jonathan Blackmore Authors Article for DSNews

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – January 27, 2021 – GrayRobinson's Jonathan L. Blackmore, of counsel in the Fort Lauderdale office, authored an article for DSNews, the leading publication for the mortgage finance industry. His article, "Florida Supreme Court Rejects 'No Standing = No Fees' Rule," discusses the December 31, 2020 Florida Supreme Court issued decision in Page v. Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas. The decision rejects the Fourth District’s holding that a borrower who successfully argues that a plaintiff lacked standing to foreclose is not entitled to an award of attorney’s fees pursuant to section 57.105(7), Florida Statutes, which states that when a contract provides for the recovery of attorney’s fees to one party, the court may also award attorney’s fees to the other party when that party prevails in any action with respect to the contract. Blackmore covers what this decision means and what may be to come.
