2014 SURVEY OF JUVENILE LAWNOVA LAW REVIEW (2014)
The Florida Legislature enacted a statute providing counsel to children in certain categories in dependency cases, and also passed a statute removing the nexus requirement to prove grounds for termination of parental rights.' Both laws are a substantial departure from prior practice and contain serious flaws, which are discussed in this survey. The Supreme Court of Florida ruled on one case during the past year, interpreting Florida's speedy trial rule in juvenile delinquency cases. Intermediate appellate courts remained active both in the delinquency area and in the dependency field. This survey reviews and analyzes the new laws and the significant reported opinions in these areas.'
