Caselaw is an important part of the United States and Florida legal systems. Judicial opinions represent a source of law that new cases follow in order to keep the law consistent and predictable for the populace.
When a case is heard in a court, the judge issues a decision. The decision is either published (it is released and made readily available to the public via print and/or electronic means) or unpublished (available only from the court in which the case was heard). For Florida State cases, virtually no trial court decisions, which include state circuit courts and county courts, are published. You may find mention of unpublished opinions in the Florida Law Weeky, discussed on the Florida Caselaw page.
