Final Judgement Reversed by Third District Court of Appeal

From an opinion filed 4/18/07
Third District Court of Appeal
State of Florida, January Term, A.D. 2007

Brooks Tropicals, Inc., Appellant,
Alcides Acosta, Appellee.

J.R. Brooks & Sons, Inc. n/k/a Brooks Tropicals, Inc. (“Brooks”) appeals
from a final judgment in Alcides Acosta’s favor on claims of breach of contract,
fraud in the inducement, fraud, and breach of fiduciary duty relating to settlement
of a Benlate related products liability law suit brought some twelve years earlier in
which Acosta and Brooks were co-plaintiffs. Because there is no evidence to
support any of these claims and because they are all barred by applicable statutes of limitation, we reverse.
