Transfer of License Case

Robert Petito v. Department of Business and Professional Regulation, Construction Industry Licening Board, DOAH Case 12-3154(F). The final order entered on January 17, 2013, found that contractor’s successfully overturning a denial of an application to transfer of license from one business entity to another, did not give rise to an award of attorneys fees pursuant to 57.105 nor 57.111. Even though contractor established that he was a “prevailing small business party,” the Construction Industry Licensing Board’s actions imposing conditions on the application approval were “substantially justified”.
