In Maria Ferreyra v. Metro Dade County and Miami-Dade County, the employer filed a motion for litigation costs against the claimant for an accident that occurred in 1998. The claimant denied these costs.
Citing the Florida Statute, the JCC determined that the 2003 amendment that established prevailing party cost recovery for an employer was not applicable to the 1998 accident. The employer’s motion was denied and dismissed.
