On May 24, 2013, Michael Napoleone of the law firm Richman Greer in West Palm Beach, Florida, Charles H. Johnson of Richman Greer in Miami and Ethan J. Wall of Richman Greer in Miami who are all representing my brother, Peter Halle of Morgan Lewis in Washington, DC, filed the Initial Brief in the Fourth District Court of Appeal of Florida. They are disputing The Honorable David E. French’s Order that took jurisdiction for the State of Florida and more specifically Palm Beach County.
Now it was my turn. I studied their brief. I spent many hours in the Law Library and Nova University. I started writing. My friend Bob helped me with the editing and I came up with an Answer Brief. With the appendix it came to 150 pages. It truly exhausted me during a time when I was not feeling very well to begin with.
On June 28, 2013, I served the Answer Brief to Michael Napoleone at Richman Greer. I am a pro se litigant, meaning I am representing myself. Richman Greer is considered one of the top law firms in South Florida.
There was nothing to do but wait. Michael Napoleone had one more brief to write. It is called a Reply Brief and then it is up to the Court to render its decision.
Nothing left to do but wait.
