SUCCESSIVE RULE 1.540(b)(4) MOTIONS ARE NOT ALLOWED BY THE TRIAL COURT, IF THE SUCCESSIVE MOTION ATTEMPTS TO RELITIGATE AN ISSUE ALREADY ADJUDICATED BY A PRIOR POST-JUDGMENT ORDER
Wilmington Trust C. v. Normandy Shores Apartment Condominium, Assoc., Inc., 47 Fla. L. Weekly D2591 (Fla. 3rd DCA Dec. 1, 2022):
A successive rule 1.540(B)(4) motion is not allowed, if that successive motion attempts to relitigate an issue already adjudicated by a prior post-judgment order.
The remedy for such a situation is to take an appeal; not to file a successive motion seeking to vacate on the same general grounds.
