John Kehoe v. Christine Garemore, 38 Fla. L. Weekly D1043b, Case No. 5D12-1871 and Case No. 5D12-2445, issued on May 10, 2013: Lessee sought quantum meruit against property owner for compensation for improvements made, and owner counterclaimed for damages arising from defective construction. While overturning post judgment motions for attorney fees in favor of property owner, appellate court affirmed the jury award based on owner’s failure to object to a purportedly erroneous jury instruction.
