New Time Calculation and Computation Rules Take Effect

Today’s the day that the new Fla. R. App. P. Rule 9.420, and the new Fla. R. Jud. Admin. 2.514, go into effect. As I noted when the rule change was announced, the new rule doesn’t so much alter as clarify the method for calculating time — most importantly, making much more clear what is or is not a “Legal Holiday” for purposes of time calculation. For a full explanation of (and links to) the rule, be sure to read my analysis here. Because new Fla. R. Jud. Admin. 2.514 applies for all rules of procedure, this one is an important read even if you never do an appeal. Happy calendaring!
