Ms. Lopez sought a court injunction against Mr. Hall, alleging he was harassing her. A temporary injunction was imposed and she later withdrew her petition for a permanent injunction. Mr. Hall filed a motion to receive attorney fees from Ms. Lopez and her attorney. The trial court ruled that attorney fees could not be recovered in cases involving Florida’s “repeat, dating and sexual violence” statute. The First District Court of Appeal overturned that ruling but certified conflict with decisions in similar cases in the Third and Fourth District Courts of Appeal.
