IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF APPEAL OF THE STATE OF FLORIDA
JULY TERM 2011
DIANNE MORRISON AND
US BANK, N.A., AS TRUSTEE
FOR CSAB, ETC.,
Case No. 5D10-556
Opinion filed July 29, 2011
Appeal from the Circuit Court
for Seminole County,
Alan A. Dickey, Judge.
Michael E. Rodriguez of Foreclosure
Defense Law Firm, PL, Tampa,
Andrew D. Manko of Carlton Fields, P.A.,
Tallahassee, Michael K. Winston and
Dean A. Morande of Carlton Fields, P.A.,
West Palm Beach, for Appellee.
Appellants challenge the final summary judgment in foreclosure entered in favor of Appellee. Appellants’ sole argument on appeal is that a disputed issue of material fact exists as to whether Appellee provided notice of default, as required by the language in the mortgage. Appellants denied that the notice had been provided, specifically quoting the language of the mortgage that pertained to the notice. Although Appellee attached a copy of the notice to its motion, the notice was not authenticated by affidavit or otherwise. The trial court overruled Appellants’ objection to the unauthenticated document. Appellee concedes that this was error, but nevertheless, contends that Appellants failed to raise the lack of notice in their pleading with the requisite specificity. We disagree and accordingly reverse and remand this cause for further proceedings.
REVERSED AND REMANDED.
SAWAYA, TORPY and EVANDER, JJ., concur.
