“Respectfully, you can’t do that, Judge.”

In Johnson v. Bezner, 2005 Fla. App. LEXIS 14746 [Fla. 4th DCA 2005] the Fourth District Court of Appeal reversed the trial judge, not because the judge enforced the mediated settlement agreement and not because the trial judge found that appellants had breached the agreement, but because the trial judge fashioned a remedy for the breach and imposed terms that were not included in the agreement. No wiggle room in this circuit civil case!
