Over the last several decades, Florida’s court system has undergone numerous reorganizations. Up until 1957 Florida did not have district courts of appeal; however, the influx of new cases bombarding the Supreme Court resulted in the partitioning of Florida into five districts. Then, in 1973, the trial courts were overhauled to reduce the number and complexity, resulting in a simple two-tiered trial court system. Since then, the South Florida court system – from Palm Beach to Miami – hears a range of issues involving commercial litigation, corporate bankruptcy and more.
