PUBLISHER’S NOTE

WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR SOUTH FLORIDA... In his 1961 inaugural address, President Kennedy made one of history’s most stirring comments: “Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.â€? Those bold words strike a chord with many of the legal, accounting and banking professionals in South Florida — particularly with our Distinguished Attorneys  ' (,      highlight 36 incredibly talented and successful professionals as Distinguished  @    %!' ( 6       qualities of leadership, dedication and hard work to succeed in the legal profession   4     . In looking back on these features, it is amazing how much these professionals “DOâ€? for their country, their state and their local communities. They are leaders in professional organizations like The Florida Bar, Dade, Broward and Palm Beach County Bars, American Bar Association and more, and contribute their time and     3    3 3   *   Many of these professionals come from humble backgrounds, and were not brought up with a “golden spoon.â€? They understood that it takes hard work, dedication and determination to grasp the opportunities in life.

GUEST OPINION

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES:

THE TRUTH IS THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES IF YOU ARE AMONG those who think that the U.S. Supreme Court has lately been more solicitous of big business, you are not alone. Legal commentators have noted this trend in Supreme Court jurisprudence since John Roberts became Chief Justice. With rare exceptions, the Court’s opinions have come down decisively on the side of big business and against consumers, workers, patients, labor unions and others whose interests differ from those represented by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Nowhere is this shift more pronounced than in the Court’s recent decisions relating to compelled arbitration. Arbitration is not new. Businesses have been entering into agreements to resolve disputes outside of the traditional court system for more than a century. It was the hostility of the courts to arbitration that led to the passage of the Federal Arbitration Act in 1925. Under the FAA, written agreements to arbitrate a dispute arising out of a transaction affecting interstate commerce are enforceable “save upon such grounds as exist at law or in equity for the revocation of any contract.� 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq., at § 2. In 2011, the Supreme Court strode into this relatively quiet corner

      4 6 the Court decided AT&T Mobility, LLC v. Concepcion, which held that the FAA preempted a California judicial rule that class arbitration waivers in consumer contracts were unconscionable. 6  Concepcion were obvious at the outset. One of the purposes of the class action mechanism is to enable plaintiffs who individually suffered a relatively small loss to band together to share   .   .  6 device also stands as a deterrent to rapacious corporate behavior, presenting at least the threat that ill-gotten gains from conduct that violates, for instance, antitrust or consumer protection laws, may be stripped away in litigation. However, without the class mechanism, individual consumers often lack the means to pursue their claims. After Concepcion, all corporations have to do to immunize their conduct from scrutiny is to include an arbitration clause with a class action waiver in every agreement they impose upon their customers. In practice, this is accomplished by sending a lengthy form “agreementâ€? to customers, which few read and even fewer contest, and which requires them to submit any dispute with the corporation to    6 ]    eloquently by Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner in a related context, “[t]he realistic alternative to a class action is not 17 million individual suits, but zero individual suits, as only a lunatic or a fanatic sues for $30.â€? Carnegie v. Household Intern., Inc., 376 F. 3d 656, 661 (7th Cir. 2004). Despite the dark clouds gathered by the Concepcion decision, there was still hope that the Supreme Court would permit some limitations 14

on corporate greed by requiring that the FAA yield in the face of a    62      avoid arbitration if she can prove that she will be unable to vindicate    6      E     and inconvenient that [the resisting party] will for all practical purposes be deprived of [her] day in court.â€? Mitsubishi Motors Corp. v. Soler Chrysler-Plymouth, Inc., 473 U.S. 614, 632 (1985). Sadly, it was not to be. In a decision this term, the Court held that even federal interests as important as those in the antitrust laws must yield when an agreement includes an arbitration clause with a class action waiver. Justice Kagan summed up the world as the Court’s majority would have it: Here is the nutshell version of this case, unfortunately obscured 2   6  €, Colors) thinks that American Express (Amex) has used its monopoly power to force merchants to accept a form contract  6  the allegedly unlawful provision (imposing a tying arrangement), but the same contract’s arbitration clause prevents him from  6      would make pursuit of the antitrust claim a fool’s errand. So if the arbitration clause is enforceable, Amex has insulated itself from antitrust liability — even if it has in fact violated the law. 6         contract effectively depriving its victims of all legal recourse. And here is the nutshell version of today’s opinion, admirably 4  4 ‚6

   American Express v. Italian Colors Restaurant, 133 S. Ct. 2304, 2313 (2013) (Kagan, J., dissenting). We only recently lived through a period when the absence of consequences for bankers’ unlawful conduct and unrestrained greed nearly led to the collapse of the international economic system. In my experience as a federal prosecutor, and as a private practitioner representing both plaintiffs and defendants, it is the threat of consequences, far more often than the impulse to behave honorably, that   6  2     effectively strips away the possibility of real consequences for a large swath of corporate misconduct. We all now have a front row seat at the Court’s grand experiment in corporatism unbound. David M. Buckner Grossman Roth, P.A. 2525 Ponce de Leon Blvd., Suite 1150 Coral Gables, FL 33134 305-442-8666 www.grossmanroth.com

EDWARD R. BLUMBERG:

A DEEP RESPECT FOR LEGAL TRADITION Edward R. Blumberg practices law based upon fundamental traditions. “To me, the highest calling in the secular world is being a lawyer,� says the Miami trial attorney. “But for the unique role lawyers serve, our democracy would cease to exist.� Respect for the traditions of the practice of law is evident at Deutsch & Blumberg, P.A., says Blumberg, a founding partner of E@    ethical. If a prospective client does not tell the truth, the case will be politely declined,� Blumberg explains. “Once lost, a lawyer’s integrity and independence cannot be easily recovered.� Adhering to the traditional values of hard work and humility, Blumberg is reluctant to say much about himself or his accomplishments, which include being named in the book “The Best Lawyers in America.� Former Florida Bar President Burton Young, a partner at Young Berman Karpf & Gonzalez, has known Blumberg for almost 35 years. “Ed has a sterling character and is a born leader with the intellect and motivation to improve the administration of justice,� he says. “He is one of the most respected lawyers in the state, and I have seen him do great things in law and in his practice.� A RESPECT FOR HISTORY Blumberg, an only child, was raised by his mother in Atlanta following his parents’ divorce. His mother’s ancestors were Sephardic Jews. Expelled from Portugal, they moved to Holland and then to Curacao before settling in Providence, Rhode Island, in 1770. A generation later, the family moved to Charleston, S.C., and then to Georgia in the late 1800s. “A lot of my ancestors were in the clergy,� he says. “One of my great grandfathers came from Atlanta  ‡@ %ˆ#$J/  was taught to do my work without fanfare. “I was raised with an old-fashioned work ethic.

Blumberg continued to build his “people skills� as a college student at the University of Georgia, where he majored in psychology. He was also a door-to-door salesman selling coupon books with “two for one� offers. Intending to apply to graduate school in psychology, Blumberg took the LSAT to practice his test taking. “I remember opening the booklet and I immediately grasped the mindset of the questions,� he says. Receiving a very high LSAT score, he realized that his future lay in the law. 18

After researching law schools, Blumberg decided on the Col @8G@ ‰    law school in the United States with distinguished alumni like Thomas Jefferson and John Marshall. “The lawyer’s role as the protector of the lone individual was inculcated in every student,â€? Blumberg says. During college, Blumberg had visited Fort Lauderdale on spring break and found it to be a vibrant place. “I felt that South Florida was a relatively new area where opportunities were unlimited,â€? he says.

MILLENNIALSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; CONTINUING EFFECT ON REAL ESTATE CANNOT BE IGNORED Millennials, otherwise known as Generation Y, are individuals born after 1979. Now, they comprise the largest segment of our population, according to the 2010 United States Census. Developers and owners

       must be aware of the shopping, living, and working trends of Millennials to ensure that their developments donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become antiquated, or even obsolete. And, the trends are telling. The Millennials grew up with the Internet, so it should be no surprise that Millennials are very comfortable shopping from a computer or a smartphone. They expect their online experience to be consistent and seamless with the real world. Millennials expect    ning to expect the same in the real world. This presents somewhat of a contradiction,   G generation to embrace a shopping experience where they purchase a product, it is shipped to them, and they knowingly have to wait 48 hours or more before receiving it. According to the Urban Land Institute, Millennials typically choose to live in an urban location over a suburban one, and largely seek to live, work, and play in close proximity. Even when they reside outside the urban core, Millennials aim to live in a location that offers an urban experience â&#x20AC;&#x201C; within suburbia. Outside of student loans, Millennials generally eschew debt, as they      philosophically, by the Great Recession of late 2007 through mid-2009. According to CNBC, studies have revealed that they continue to save more often than any prior generation, and the publication Chain Store Age predicts that they will outspend the Baby Boomers by 2017. If retail centers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capture the attention of Millennials, they face the prospect of â&#x20AC;&#x153;missing the boat,â&#x20AC;? and not â&#x20AC;&#x153;capturing the walletsâ&#x20AC;? of the largest generation of future shoppers. Millennials are savvy consumers and they have a lot of information being transmitted to them. Developers that are integrating this demographic transformation into their current and future projects will likely have retail centers with a distinct identity, or an experiential aspect, whether it is a discount center, a groceryanchored center, or service centers, such as

establishments, or a mixture of the abovementioned uses. Landlords following this trend know that Millennials will purchase their commoditized products online, so they must be extremely strategic in assembling their tenant mix. Many commoditized national chain stores will likely be replaced with a mix of differentiated national chains and local proprietors. Diverse restaurant choices will be an uppermost priority, as Millennials view eating out as a form of entertainment. Developers and owners of retail space are already cognizant that sales from the Internet are eroding some portion of brick and mortar sales. As such, stores will      frequently updated. Landlords and tenants must work together to optimize each shopping venue. Many successful retail centers will have a great deal of community gathering spaces that are WI-FI capable. Developers and landlords looking to attract Millennials are already attempting to incorporate surrounding housing into their developments, by creating walking and biking paths covered by canopy trees. This increases the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;walkability,â&#x20AC;? and thus allows Millennials to shop without having to get into their cars. This creates the urban suburbia. With the continued rise of Internet sales, one imminent concern is the anticipated reduction in retailersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; real world footprint. To counteract this trend, retailers must focus on omni-channeling and be ready for their retail space to handle â&#x20AC;&#x153;click-and-pick-upâ&#x20AC;? locations. Stores must also have a diverse inventory in order to meet the ever changing needs of Millennials. As a result of these changing shopping habits, placement of distribution centers is evolving. As more sales occur online, and the expectation (not just from Millennials) that the products be delivered on the day of order, developers of distribution centers are moving away from an industrial analytical analysis of placement of distribution hubs, to a consumer analytical analysis. @ cantly affected by these trends, lifestyle centers, shopping centers, power centers, and neighborhood centers are recognizing these trends and adapting in order to remain competitive in the real world. Housing developers have become mind-

ful of these trends, understanding that Millennials want to live, work and play in close proximity to each activity. Consequently, developers are constructing more housing options in the urban core. Since this land is more expensive, Millennials understand    6 are willing to dwell in smaller living spaces 3    their housing contains large and extensive  

   centers, and dedicated areas for pets. If the barriers to entry are too high to build in the urban core, then developers will try to develop housing that is located in close proximity to public transportation and walkable retail space. The suburbs are not going away, but new housing stock needs to consider these trends and incorporate accordingly. Finally, Millennials are also having a    (. living and housing trends, Millennials place           4

    +     square feet per employee, and potentially subsequent parking issues. Millennials also desire extensive amenities such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;game roomsâ&#x20AC;? to foster brainstorming sessions. '       paying attention and reacting accordingly. As the largest segment of the U.S. population, Millennials are affecting, and will continue to affect, all aspects of real estate. Owners, developers, investors, and tenants with an eye on the future are recognizing this demographic â&#x20AC;&#x153;revolution,â&#x20AC;? and are revamping many of their strategies to account    4  Millennials.

A CLOSER LOOK AT â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;PATENT TROLLSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; GAO REPORT ILLUMINATES THE RISE OF PATENT LITIGATION The long anticipated Government Accountability Office (GAO) report on rising patent litigation and the role of nonpracticing entities (NPE) was published in August to relatively muted response from corporate America and legislative bodies. Rhetoric lobbed from both ends has long defined the public discussion on NPEs, or as they are more commonly known, â&#x20AC;&#x153;patent trolls.â&#x20AC;? The conversation seems poised to change, though, based on the GAOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data and conclusion, which revealed contradictions regarding the NPE affect. The GAO report, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Assessing Factors That Affect Patent Infringement Litigation Could Help Improve Patent Quality,â&#x20AC;? was mandated by section thirtyfour of the 2011 Leahy-Smith America Invents Act (AIA), which made several fundamental changes to United States Patent Office (USPTO) procedures. The reportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inclusion came in response to overwhelming frustration with NPEs, expressed up and down supply chains at every level of industry, from small business owners to Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest manufacturers and retailers. NPEs have come under intense scrutiny from lawmakers, industry and a growing rank of academics. Under less scrutiny has been a fundamental question in the NPE debate that the GAO strove to address in its report: exactly who is a patent troll? Neither the president, nor the legislator, nor the Supreme Court â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nor industry reports and academic studies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have yet to solidify a definitive terminology, much less a consensus of what entities and business models belong in the NPE category. Attempting to grasp this obscurity, the GAO report identified several kinds of NPEs: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to individual inventors who may choose not to develop products based on their patents, there are other types of â&#x20AC;&#x153;nonpracticingâ&#x20AC;? patent owners, or nonpracticing entities (NPE). For example, some universities are NPEs, as they develop technologies in campus laboratories, and rather than producing and selling products that incorporate these technologies; they license their patents on these technologies to companies who use them in their products.

In addition, some private firms are NPEs as they specialize in R&D, and rather than selling products, they license the patents for those products to fund further research. Some NPEs simply buy patents from others for the purpose of asserting them for profit; these NPEs are known as patent monetization entities (PME). Other PMEs include companies that produced products at one time and still own patents on the technologies for those products.â&#x20AC;? Still, the report concluded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Experts agree that NPEs have a variety of business models, which makes it difficult to fit them neatly into any one of these categories.â&#x20AC;? Astonishingly, the GAO didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find the cause of rising litigation in this muddle. Actually, it distanced itself from the NPE backlash in the first paragraph of its report, â&#x20AC;&#x153;History is filled with examples of successful inventors who did not develop products based on the technologies they patentedâ&#x20AC;Ś In the United States, the party that owns a patent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the patent owner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is not required to put the patent to use in order to profit from it; he can also license others to use it. In some instances, patent owners may need to actively assert their patents in an adversarial context if another firmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s product infringes their patents.â&#x20AC;? Data contained in the report seemed mostly to support caution in the face of the recent slew of NPE legislation. In the years they focused on, 2007 to 2011, the GAO found operating companies brought most of the patent infringement lawsuits, with PMEs accounting for only about a fifth of the total. Still, even though PMEs accounted for only about a fifth of the total during this time, PMEs sued close to one-third of the overall defendants, â&#x20AC;&#x153;accounting for about half of the overall increase in defendants.â&#x20AC;? This statistic regarding PMEs didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sway the GAO, though, in its determination that other factors had greater impact on the rise in patent litigation in recent years. The report pointed out several, including the granting of patents with overly broad or unclear claims, the potential for large awards from the court, â&#x20AC;&#x153;even for ideas that make only small contributions to a product,â&#x20AC;? the â&#x20AC;&#x153;recog-

Who is a patent troll? Neither the president, nor the legislator, nor the Supreme Court â&#x20AC;&#x201D; nor industry reports and academic studies â&#x20AC;&#x201D; have        terminology,

nition by companies that patents are a more valuable asset than once assumedâ&#x20AC;? and even the implementation of the AIA, which limits the number of defendants a plaintiff can name in a lawsuit, causing some plaintiffs that would have previously filed a single lawsuit with many defendants to multiply the lawsuit as many times as its defendants. The GAO ended its report with perhaps the most benign description of NPEs a government entity has made to date: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Public discussion surrounding patent infringement litigation often focuses on the increasing role of NPEs. However, our analysis indicates that regardless of the type of litigant, lawsuits involving software-related patents accounted for about 89 percent of the increase in defendants between 2007 and 2011, and most of the suits brought by PMEs involved software-related patents. This suggests that the focus on the identity of the litigant â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rather than the type of patent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; may be misplaced.â&#x20AC;?

ADVANCED ISSUES IN DAMAGES CALCULATIONS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; HOW AN EXPERT ADJUSTS FOR RISK We can all concur on the age-old adage, â&#x20AC;&#x153;nothing is certain except death and taxes.â&#x20AC;? However, how to account for uncertainty can be an area of stark disagreement. Gaining a clear understanding of  + Â&#x20AC;Â&#x2022;   damage calculation for risk can aid counsel tremendously. There are two approaches that are not widely known for accounting for risk in the development of a damages model. One is the capital markets approach, which favors using a higher, risk-adjusted discount rate. The second is the expected cash 4        . 4   relatively low rate to discount the future 4 .  6    4  projections and the discount rate call for .,    4  stream unadjusted for risk would generally call for a higher discount rate to account for risk.

Keep in mind there are degrees of ordi.4 +    such as economic conditions and industry       3  .

In some instances, a hybrid approach may be appropriate. Accounting for risks in the   4     does not preclude a risk-adjusted discount rate to account for risks not addressed in the projection. In addition, some courts look at a reinvestment rate â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is, an amount that, if reinvested, will replace the lost economic income. This measurement suggests that the risk premium included in the discount rate and the reinvestment rate should be equal. However, this may not be appropriate, because the plaintiff may not have an available investment with a level of risk that could have been managed similarly to the impaired business. While experts may disagree on how to adjust for risk, it is imperative that the reason for choosing a risk-adjustment method is well-founded, appropriate for     - explained in the expertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report.

A POT OF GOLD IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED, FOLLOW THE MONEY Often, I hear that â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you want to know what happened, follow the money.â&#x20AC;? Recognizing the â&#x20AC;&#x153;pot of goldâ&#x20AC;? permits a forensic accountant to decide how to follow the money. That said, does the mere existence of a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pot of goldâ&#x20AC;? arouse dishonesty in otherwise â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? people? Are some people prepared to risk their names, reputations and freedom for wealth and lifestyle? After Hurricane Wilma passed through South Florida in 2005, a condominium association suffering physical damage from the storm received an award for the restoration of the association common areas and condominium units from its insurance carriers. Certain members of the association board of directors with authority to disburse the funds from insurance

Those documents had to be reconstituted to determine the amount of misused resources. Shining a light on the involved board members, their mismanagement of the Hurricane Wilma association insurance funds and their liability for reimbursing the condominium association triggered a pattern of additional exploitation of their board member positions through the use of yet another insurance policyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coverage for their own protection. Simply, an available pot of gold proved irresistible to previously trusted members of the association board of directors.

     criminal defense attorney, the defendant seemed unable to honestly look into the mirror and was later sentenced to prison for the misappropriation of client trust funds awards resulting from personal injury settlements. Throughout our analysis, the defendant resolutely stated that the indictment entered for the appropriation was merely the result of a series of accounting misunderstandings by the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investigators. The defendant repeatedly stated to us that the client victims had provided written authorization for what the government was misconstruing as the misuse of their settlement funds. Upon forensic review, the consents were for the express use of partial settlement awards to fund the costs of continuing related litigation. After transferring the fee percentage authorized under attorney-client engagement letters, the defendant inappropriately channeled    lavish lifestyle. Finally, the court system was blamed for the economic situation that resulted in the misappropriation of client trust funds. During several prior years, the defendant enjoyed a respected professional reputation, hobnobbed with the rich and famous in South Florida and lived the lifestyle of a person with a high liquid net worth. It was the result of spending entrusted money that belonged to other people. The immense potential projected size of personal injury awards proved an irresistible pot of gold. Family law is an area in which the transfiguration of love into hate and disdain seems to cause the search for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow to be an obsession. Litigants behave more irrationally than in other venues, and emotions appear to be more intense than in other litigations.

In case after case, one party or the other presents financial affidavits to the court that they know or should know are inaccurate. It seems that the financial ruin of the other party is the actual objective of the litigation rather than simply ending the marriage, equitably distributing marital assets and providing for the economic support of minor children and a spouse who may not currently have employable skills.

When the litigation ended in the family court, the largest single objectively valued asset was the family home valued at under $1 million.

The pot of liquid gold in this case was in excess of $500,000, almost all of which went to pay litigation related fees and costs.

CONTROVERSY IN THE COMPETITIVE BIDDING PROCESS Competitive bidding is at the center of most contractual relationships between private parties and the government. Even when no statute or constitutional provision requires that a particular contract be awarded by public bid, Florida public policy strongly discourages expending public funds without competitive bidding.1 Competitive bidding is designed to protect the public against collusive contracts, favoritism, unfair competition,      The process of competitive bidding necessarily implies winners and losers. Disappointed bidders, believing some procedure in the bidding process granted their competitors an unfair advantage, or that the governmental entity failed to       bid protests or lawsuits. This article addresses some of the major issues in such cases. In analyzing the merits of a bid protest, one must review the bid documents, responses and evaluations of the public entityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff and any relevant committees. Such a review will produce at least three valuable results. First, it may disclose support for the protest. Secondly, it will highlight arguments against the bid protest. Third, it allows one last chance to convince staff that the recommended bidder is nonresponsive and that its bid    -  PREPARING FOR THE PROTEST HEARING

LEGAL ISSUES REGARDING BID PROTESTS

In framing the bid protest, it is essential to recognize that most bid protests are not won in court; they are won, if at all, at the administrative level, since courts generally support the public entity. In determining the chances for success in court, several issues must be addressed. In the first instance, to be disqualified, the bid must contain a â&#x20AC;&#x153;material varianceâ&#x20AC;? from the plans and specifications. 2 A material variance is one that gives a bidder a substantial advantage over other bidders and restricts or stif les competition.3 Another important consideration is whether the winning bidder meets the selection criteria designated in the bid documents. The selection criteria must be articulated in the bidding documents.4 A protest can also be based on a failure of a prospective bidder to be a responsible bidder. Florida law and the purchasing authority defines the requirements that each bidder must have as of bid opening. This can include: certifications, licenses, delinquencies on other projects, etc. Failure to meet conditions required to be a responsible bidder can lead to disqualification. 5 Lastly, the courts have repeatedly supported government in its ability to reject all bids in the event of a bid dispute. The request, however, is not limitless and cannot be arbitrary, capricious or used to confer and unfair advantage on a favorite bidder.6 The client must be involved in determining possible deviations from the process that could support a protest.

thus, take advantage of their credibility with public officials. CONCLUSION

A thorough approach to preparing for a bid protest will not only increase oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chances of success at the public hearing, but also will further ensure an appropriate record in the event of an appeal or other legal actions, if necessary.

POLITICAL PROCESS

Politics is an integral part of any bidding process, and enjoys special importance in a bid protest. The issues involved in most bid protests are technical, and the elected officials deciding the protest usually have no previous exposure to the specific problems involved and must be educated and persuaded to support the protest. An important part of the political process is to discuss with the client the possibility of retaining one or more lobbyists or a public relations firm to help present the case to the public body and

NO HARM NO FOUL: WHY PROPORTIONALITY SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS PART OF THE PRESERVATION Parties have a general duty to preserve and produce relevant electronically stored information (ESI). This duty, however, is bounded by a proportionality requirement because e-discovery should not be allowed to be the tail that wags the dog. Courts and parties have been adept at applying proportionality requirements to the production of ESI, but they have struggled to apply proportionality to the preservation of ESI. In an attempt to provide guidance to courts and reduce risk to parties, the proposed revision to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(b)(1) formalizes the proper proportionality analysis. However, lawyers, even without the protection of the revised rule, should provide their clients with information so that a risk analysis can be performed as part of the crafting of a preservation plan. I. CURRENTLY THE DUTY TO PRESERVE IS BROADER THAN THE DUTY TO PRODUCE.

When a party reasonably anticipates litigation, it is required to put in place a litigation hold to preserve all potentially relevant ESI and other documents.1 Parties must be mindful that the exemptions stated in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 34, excusing the production of certain kinds of ESI due to expense and burden, do not generally excuse the duty to preserve. The duty to preserve is broader than the duty to produce. FED. R. CIV. P. 26, Committee Note, Subdivision (b)(2) (â&#x20AC;&#x153;[a] partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s      9 ,  reasonably accessible does not relieve the party of its common-law or statutory duties to preserve evidenceâ&#x20AC;?). Accordingly, even where a party reasonably believes that ESI is not reasonably accessible due to undue burden or expense, the current state of the law requires preservation.

allowed if it determines that the burden or expense of the proposed discovery out.2 Various district courts have counseled parties about the importance of proportionality in both document preservation and discovery conduct. For example, the Southern District of Texas held, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether preservation or discovery conduct is acceptable in a case depends on what is reasonable, and that in turn depends on whether what was done â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or not done â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was proportional to that case and consistent with clearly established applicable standards.â&#x20AC;?3 Thus, if the burden or expense         not require preservation of certain ESI. The duty to preserve, however, may   , instances a party can reach out to the party it anticipates will bring a claim to negotiate the scope of preservation. However, in the not so unlikely event that cooperative efforts fail, the preserving party will have to decide what it will preserve without the guidance of the court or the opposing party. Even outside the safe harbor of a court order or agreement of the parties, a lawyer should help the client undertake a risk analysis when implementing its preservation strategy. It is well established that, in order for a party to be sanctioned, three requirements must be met: (1) the party must have had an obligation to preserve the ESI at the time it was destroyed; (2) the party must have destroyed the ESI with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;culpableâ&#x20AC;? state of mind (beyond mere negligence); and (3) the ESI must have been relevant to supporting the opposing partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim or defense.4 Thus, if a party chooses not to preserve a certain type of ESIâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;particularly a type with a high cost to preserve but little to no chance of relevanceâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;there is only a small risk that discovery sanctions will be ordered, but a certainty that great expense will be avoided.

II. APPLICATION OF PROPORTIONALITY TO PRESERVATION.

III. PROPOSED CHANGE TO RULE 26(B)(1).

Like with all other parts of their business, clients must be willing to perform a risk analysis when implementing a legal hold.

WHY YOU ARE SAFER ON THE HIGHWAYS THAN IN A HOSPITAL: MEDICAL ERRORS KILL (A LOT) MORE PEOPLE Most people feel that driving on the highways is a high-risk activity. Trucks, speeders, tourists and distracted drivers combine to sometimes make South Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roads seem like a demolition derby. But a careful examination of the facts reveals that you are much more likely to be killed by a medical mistake than a negligent driver. In its landmark 1999 report â&#x20AC;&#x153;To Err is Human,â&#x20AC;? the Institute of Medicine reported that as many as 98,000 people die yearly from medical mistakes in hospitals. Although wide      acceptance in the medical community. But this number actually grossly understates the     ,#$%$] of the Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services concluded that medical mistakes and poor health care caused or contributed to 180,000 deaths in Medicare patients alone each year. Most recently, further studies have assessed the carnage that results from poor medical care. In September 2013, Dr. John T. James published an article on evidence-based estimates of patient harms associated with hospital care in the Journal of Patient Safety (Vol. 9, No. 3), which concluded that somewhere between 210,000 and 400,000 patients die each year from preventable harm caused by health care errors. That makes medical mistakes the third leading cause of death in America (behind only heart disease and canÂ&#x2022;6. Â&#x2019;# $$$ year by comparison. The latest studies have focused on diagnostic mistakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is more evidence that diagnostic errors could easily be the biggest patient safety and medical malpractice problem in the United States,â&#x20AC;? says David E. Newman-Toker, M.D., Ph.D., an associate professor of neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and leader of the study published online in BMJ Quality and Safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more harm associated with diagnostic errors than we imagined.â&#x20AC;? This study analyzed data from 1986-2010, far greater data than had previously been studied. (Johns Hopkins, 4/23/2013) The data suggests that misdiagnosis errors may cause 160,000 deaths and serious injuries. As many as one-third of hospital visits lead to hospital-related injuries, according to a re-

As few as 2 percent of medication errors are reported to patients. Consumers are       their condition was caused by malpractice. So what is the recourse for Floridians who are injured or killed by medical mistakes? Florida has a very complicated, stringent and often-criticized medical malpractice law that severely limits the access to legal help when someone has suffered a medical mistake. Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Malpractice Act (Fla. Stat. 766), which is seemingly amended yearly by the Legislature, includes everything from presuit screening, notice requirements, limits on damages, abrogation of common law and statutory bad faith, limits on expert witnesses (and -  Florida Board of Medicine) and many other mechanisms that were ostensibly enacted to protect doctors and hospitals from what was perceived as a hostile environment. To top it off, Florida doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even require that doctors carry malpractice insurance. As a result, a majority of those practicing in South Florida â&#x20AC;&#x153;go bare.â&#x20AC;? The concept of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;frivolousâ&#x20AC;? medical malpractice case in Florida is almost laughable. Given the complexities of the cases, the costs involved, limited statute of limitations, vast uninsured providers, and the environment surrounding malpractice litigation, it would be hard to conceive that many attorneys would posit â&#x20AC;&#x153;frivolousâ&#x20AC;? cases of this genre when they are operating on their own dime (which is required under a contingency fee agreement). In fact, there are very few      This leaves most Floridians without much leverage. The civil justice system was the one check that provided a disincentive to make medical mistakes. Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Medicine does little to deter medical mistakes. Now that there are fewer and fewer cases, it is not surprising that there are more and more medical errors. The lack of civil justice remedies, com-

bined with managed care precipitated by      -  creates a â&#x20AC;&#x153;McMedicineâ&#x20AC;? environment. All of this results in a system that is broken. The patients get poor care. The victims of serious medical mistakes have limited remedies, and most small-to-mid sized medical malpractice cases leave the patient without any practical remedy. ,/  Â&#x201C;    crashed into a mountain every day of the year, would there be an immediate call for change?

Would the aviation industry â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or the American public â&#x20AC;&#x201D; stand for that? This is a call to action. Everyone is at risk.

THE VALUE OF EXPERT VALUATIONS IN BANKRUPTCY LITIGATION Valuation litigation can be as complex as it can be unpredictable, particularly in bankruptcy litigation. Bankruptcy-related disputes may involve various methodologies for valuation in addition to intricate corporate accounting issues. To address all of these complexi--    . 3    is where the true value of expert testimony from third-party valuation professionals comes into play. The use of experts, particularly valuation analysts, is standard operating procedure in corporate litigation, as courts are increasingly seeking an objective valuation opinion on which they can base their judgments and opinions. In terms of bankruptcy litigation, there are a number of questions that a third-party valuation expert may be called upon to clarify. Determining the reorganization value of an entity, determining solvency for recovery actions, and assessing the value of collateral, are just a few case points that could involve assessments of a businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s or particular assetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s value during bankruptcy litigation. VALUATION METHODOLOGIES

     ÂŁ assets, tangible or intangible, have value.      E amount of money, goods, etc. for which a thing can be exchanged or traded.â&#x20AC;? On the surface then, it would seem that in order to assess the value of any asset, the simplest way would be to just sell it. However, there may not be a market for every asset involved in a major corporate bankruptcy case. And, even if there were, according to Judge Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi, markets may not be capable of establishing the potential sale price

In bankruptcy litigation, there are a number of questions that a third-party valuation expert may be called upon to clarify.

SOUTH FLORIDA LEGAL GUIDE 2014

Financial experts have established several more accurate valuation methodologies. Yet, even they admit that valuation is not an exact science, and that both objective and subjective factors may be used in the valuation process. It is also important to keep in mind that the value of an asset may change based on the premise of value and standard of value on which    4 value at a particular point in time and the value of an asset may change as different facts and circumstances arise. In addition, it may be more appropriate to attribute a range of values to an asset rather than a point estimate. Still, valuation professionals use

Relative valuation approaches, which base value on how comparable assets are priced. 4. Option pricing that uses contingent claim valuation. USES OF VALUATION IN DISTRESS AND BANKRUPTCY

Regardless of which of the four methods is used, the purpose in bankruptcy litigation is the same: to determine as accurately as possible what the sale price would be, which is referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;price discovery.â&#x20AC;? Beyond that you can expect valuation experts to provide their opinions on the fairness of transactions, on equivalent value, and on the reasonableness of reorganization plans. Other uses may include: Â&#x;    operations and the prospects for reorganization; Â&#x;    units or other assets to be sold in order to generate liquidity or rationalize the business; Â&#x;      value of the distressed assets and options for receiving the highest future

payout; Â&#x;9   Â  and Â&#x;9  .   EXPERT EXPECTATIONS

For the past decade or more, the courts have increasingly turned to professional valuation analysts during bankruptcy proceedings. In turn, the industry has seen increased professionalism and sophistication among valuation analysts who practice in the bankruptcy discipline. That trend has created some high expectations of expert testimony from valuation professionals. Judge Sontchi points out that bankruptcy judges have become familiar and comfortable with DCF and the relative valuation approaches, and that courts have come to consider them as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;standardâ&#x20AC;? methodologies. While use of accepted alternative valuation methods may be appropriate, judges may be inherently suspicious of methods that depart from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;standard.â&#x20AC;? The complexities involved mean that litigators in need of the services of expert valuation analysis in bankruptcy proceedings should take great care to use an expert with a proven track record, who knows how to successfully employ the generally accepted methodologies, and who is cognizant of the source and reliability of data used to assess value, because reliance upon unreasonable data can void an expertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion.

AMIKIDS TRANSFORMING TROUBLED TEENS INTO RESPONSIBLE ADULTS FOR 40 YEARS AMIKIDS WILL SOON MARK 40 years of changing lives in Miami-Dade County, one child at a time. To mark its anniversary, and to help raise much needed funds, AMIkids Miami-Dade is hosting a bingo fundraising event on Saturday January 11, 2014 on Virginia Key. G,.   *  3   *  has successfully provided more than 115,000 young people with pathways out of troubled pasts. Working in partnership with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and Miami-Dade County Schools, AMIkids Miami-Dade has two local campuses where it works to improve the lives of teens through positive and motivating programs that inspire learning, leadership and personal growth. AMIkidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; students take classes, participate in vocational training and engage in meaningful community activities while learning to be productive citizens and leaders. Students range in age from 13 to 18 and spend an average of three to six months in the program. 6          discipline and positive reinforcement, one-on-one counseling, mentoring, superior classroom instruction, and experiential training in activities like SCUBA and culinary arts. The program brightens futures that were once dimmed by everything from truancy to gang membership. AMIkids Miami-Dade has served more than 7,000 local teens and their families since 1974. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When every decision that you make is based on what is best for kids, those kids will achieve success. That philosophy is at the heart of AMIkids and guides our work,â&#x20AC;? says AMIkids Vice President of Operations Heyward Golden, who has worked for the organization for more than 25 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What sets AMIkids apart is our family culture. Our kids become family and they know that someone cares about them and is invested in their success.â&#x20AC;? While in the program, AMIkids students routinely improve their academic performance by at least one grade level, many successfully returning to local public schools or earning their GED, and some take online college courses. And most importantly, 85 to 90 percent of the youth who complete the program stay on the law-abiding path to productive citizenship. The AMIkids Miami-Dade Board Chair, Jorge Alvarez, of SunTrust Investment Services, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our approach of combining edu        .  and their families, it impacts the local community as well. Kids are taught about both giving back through community service, and the importance of meaningful work. The ties our kids are building with local communities ensure that they understand and embrace the idea of good citizenship at home.â&#x20AC;? AMIkids was founded in 1969 in Florida as the initiative of a Broward juvenile court judge, Judge Frank Orlando. Judge Orlando became frustrated with seeing the same teenagers in his courtroom time and again. He joined forces with Bob Rosof, who operated a marine research vessel for Florida Atlantic University. The judge sent a small group of boys to work with Rosof and his staff, who acted as role models for the boys and helped them see a different future for themselves. 6      G,. ity.

These programs evolved from marine-based experiential activities to include wilderness and environmental experiences, such as kayaking, rock-climbing, and camping. Today, AMIkids operates 41 programs in seven states in the southwestern and southeastern United States, serving more than 5,000 kids each year. The Board of Directors of AMIkids Miami-Dade includes Jorge Alvarez, Sun Trust Investment Services; Luis de Armas, Shutts & Bowen; Lyndall Lambert, Holland & Knight LLP; Corey A.

Williams. The schools employ 27 members of our community, including Executive Directors Terrance Levell and Enrique Garcia.
