Statute of Limitations and Relation Back Doctrine

“Bernardo Kopel v. Leon Kopel, 38 Fla. L. Weekly ‘D666a, Case No. 3D11-536, filed March 20, 2013. Trial court judgment based on amended complaint that alleged a new cause of action barred by the statutes of limitation was reversed based on the non-applicability of the “relation back” doctrine. In addition, a claim of unjust enrichment against individual defendants was also reversed where the evidence showed that any such benefit was to corporate entities instead.” (from Construction Regulation Subcommittee Monthly Report).
