House Bill 213 would relax standard for Final Judgment in foreclosure cases–FloridaBar.org

If a Plaintiff in a case can demonstrate to the Court that there is no issue of material fact in a case, that is that the parties do not disagree on any fact necessary to prove the Plaintiff’s case, the court can enter a Final Judgement without a trial.  HB 213 currently in the legislature would allow the court to enter judgment in foreclosure cases even when the homeowner disagrees with the facts the bank asserts, such as whether they own the note or how much is due.  The Motion for Summary Judgment process was already risky for the homeowner and now it is going to be that much more dangerous.
