Clerks of court warn budget cuts will delay filings

Just as I had predicted (and feared) now that the Florida legislature has passed a 7% budget cut to the state’s Clerk of Courts,  officials from those offices are already warning of a major slowdown at courthouses across the state.

Case filings may now take weeks instead of days. Hearings may be delayed.

For people who have foreclosure cases before the court, don’t expect a return to the ‘rocket docket’ days.
