The June 1 story “Magistrates to help move foreclosures” erroneously stated the Supreme Court’s May 9 opinion amending Rule of Civil Procedure 1.490 to allow magistrates to handle foreclosures was effective 60 days from the issuance of the opinion. Actually, the change was effective immediately. We also spelled “foreclosure” wrong in the headline.
An editing error in a May 15 letter from Dave Woodward substituted “derivative” for “deprivative” in the sentence: “Firstly, I posit that ‘speedy foreclosure,’ at least as done in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas, is deprivative of not only 5th (‘[no citizen shall be] deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. . .’ and 14th (‘[no] state [shall] deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law. . .’) U.S. amendment rights, but it is also a denial of the rights of Floridians under Article I, Section 21 of the Florida Declaration of Rights and Freedoms (‘The courts shall be open to every person for redress of any injury, and justice shall be administered without sale, denial, or delay.’)”
