FINR II, owner of 872 acres in Hardee County, sued the county under a state law that protects property owners whose property is affected by governmental actions. FINR II alleged the county’s action allowing a neighboring property owner to expand mining operations forced its own bankruptcy. The trial court dismissed the complaint but the Second District Court of Appeal overturned that decision. The 2nd DCA also certified conflict with the First District Court of Appeal in a similar but unrelated case.
