Florida Supreme Court Opinions
Opinion Release: The Clerk's Office typically releases opinions at 11 a.m. each Thursday. Court staff posts them to this website as soon as possible thereafter. There will be times when opinions may be released outside of this schedule, such as in emergencies. Scheduled and unscheduled opinion releases are announced via Twitter @flcourts.
The Court generally convenes during the first week of each month, except during mid-summer. Typical oral arguments allow each side either 20 or 30 minutes.
The Office of the Clerk is responsible for maintaining all case files and tracking the progress of cases through the Supreme Court.
In the Supreme Court, use of the Florida Courts E-Filing Portal is mandatory for attorneys in good standing with The Florida Bar in compliance with Rule 2.525, Fla. R. Jud. Admin., and Administrative Order AOSC13-7.

The Court makes available many different forms of information about cases. The most common way to find information about a case is to review the case’s docket -- a list of briefs and other filings and rulings in that case.
