As we have previously pointed out, each circuit's clerk's office apparently creates the list of documents you can label your document when you e-file it.
Dade County has been sorely lacking in creating appropriate labels.
Here is what you cannot properly label when e-filing a motion in Dade County:
A Stand Your Ground Motion To Dismiss based on Immunity.
Here, however is what you can file:
"MOTION FOR EXPIRATION OF SPEEDY TRIAL."
Now, as we all know, there is a "Notice" Of Expiration of Speedy Trial. And there is a "Motion to dismiss" based on the expiration of speedy trial. But as far as we know, Rule 3.191 does not contain any authority to move for expiration of speedy trial.
Such a motion is a non-sequitur.
Just who is writing these labels? And when will they graduate high-school?
It is apparently too much to ask for a lawyer or someone with legal training and knowledge of the criminal justice system to actually write labels for motions that are regularly filed.
See You In Court.
