[author: ]

In this mortgage foreclosure case, the trial court issued a 60-day notice of lack of prosecution.  Although counsel received a copy of the notice within the 60-day period, plaintiff did not respond within this period or show good cause in writing at least five days before the hearing why the action should remain pending.  The court dismissed the case for lack of prosecution despite counsel’s disputed claim that notice was received late within the 60-day period.  The appellate court affirmed, holding further that the “‘no notice received’ exceptions detailed in Deutsche Bank National Trust Co. v. Basanta, 88 So. 3d 216 (Fla. 3d DCA 2011), and Boosinger v. Davis, 46 So. 3d 152, 154 n.2 (Fla. 2d DCA 2010),” did not apply.
