I have written several times concerning Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.525, and the absolute necessity to file a Motion for Attorneys Fees: 1) within 30 days after the filing of the judgment, or 2) within 30 days after becoming entitled to fees if no judgment is filed. In Jackson v. Betty Holmes Anthony, ____ So.3d ____ (Fla. 1st DCA July 23, 2010), the Court held:
1. A Motion for Rehearing does not toll the 30-day time limit in rule 1.525.
2. A post-trial Motion to Admit and Consider Newly Discovered Evidence, does not toll the 30-day time limit.
