Antico v. Sindt Trucking, Inc.

Case Date: 10/13/2014
Citation: Antico v. Sindt Trucking, Inc., 148 So. 3d 163 (Fla. 1st DCA 2014)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 1st DCA
Judge: Judge: Timothy D. Osterhaus
Rule(s): Fla. R. Civ. P. 1.280

Following a wrongful death lawsuit, the trial court ordered Petitioner to allow Respondent to examine the contents of a cell phone from the day of the accident, and Petitioner filed a writ of certiorari.


The Court denied Petitioner’s writ. The discovery order allowed for a limited supervised search and carefully balanced the privacy interests of Petitioner. Further, there was specific corroborating evidence that information from the cell phone would be pertinent to the case, as there were several witnesses and a statement from an officer that the cell phone was being used around the time of the accident.
