David v. Textor

Case Date: 01/06/2016
Citation: David v. Textor, 189 So. 3d 871 (Fla. 4th DCA 2016)
Court Type: District Court of Appeal
Court: Fla. 4th DCA
Judge: Judge: Martha C. Warner
Rule(s): Florida Statute 784.0485

Petitioner David appealed a non-final order denying the dissolution of an injunction prohibiting cyberstalking.


The Court reversed the temporary injunction. Petitioner David’s acts did not amount to cyberstalking, as a reasonable person would not suffer severe emotional distress over the acts. Petitioner and Respondent were both sophisticated businessmen, and their comments to one another were normal business dealings that did not amount to threats. Further, comments posted in public could not said to be directed at a specific person pursuant to Florida’s cyberstalking statute.
