U.S. BANK NATIONAL ASSOCIATION,
ETC.,
Appellant,

v.                              Case No. 5D12-3823

PATRICIA J. BARTRAM ETC., ET AL.,
Appellee.
________________________________/
Opinion filed April 25, 2014
Appeal from the Circuit Court
for St. Johns County,
John M. Alexander, Judge.

EXCERPT:

Because we believe the issue we resolve is a matter of great public importance,
we certify the following question to the Florida Supreme Court:

Does acceleration of payments due under a note and mortgage in a
foreclosure action that was dismissed pursuant to rule 1.420(b), Florida
Rules of Civil Procedure, trigger application of the statute of limitations to
prevent a subsequent foreclosure action by the mortgagee based on all
payment defaults occurring subsequent to dismissal of the first foreclosure
suit?

REVERSED; REMANDED; QUESTION CERTIFIED.
SAWAYA, ORFINGER, and EVANDER, JJ., concur.

Palm Beach Post-

A Florida appeals court crushed the hopes of hundreds, if not thousands, of defaulted homeowners Friday in a benchmark decision on how the state’s five-year foreclosure deadline is interpreted.

With the first serious wave of foreclosures now six years past, some borrowers with aging or abandoned cases were counting on a common contract law that says a person has five years to sue on a debt or give up the right to collect.

    If those HUNDREDS and THOUSANDS of Florida homeowners do not march on the Supreme Court, then Floridians deserve what the outcome is. They should be marching on the Supreme Court and bringing torches and pitchforks!

    And maybe a guillotine.
