Effective immediately, the Florida Supreme Court has amended Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.442 to clarify that you do not get an additional five days to respond to a proposal for settlement when the proposal is mailed.  The ambiguity came about following the changes to Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.090 and Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.514(b).

Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.442 has been edited to reflect the amendment.
