CourtCourt of Appeal of Florida (US)

An Appeal under Florida Rule of Appellate Procedure 9.140(i) from the Circuit Court for Dade County, Marc Shumacher, Judge.

Arthur Hall, in proper person.

Robert A. Butterworth, Attorney General, and Christine E. Zahralban, Assistant Attorney General, for appellee.
