Opinion filed September 26, 2001. An appeal from the Circuit Court for Miami-Dade County, Bernard S. Shapiro, Judge. Paul J. Kneski, for appellant. Burd, Lozano & Zacherl, LLP, and William G. Burd, and John S. McPhee, for appellee.
Before LEVY, GREEN, and FLETCHER, JJ.
PER CURIAM. This is an appeal from a final judgment following a defense verdict in a property negligence action. The plaintiff abandoned
his motion for new trial without having it heard, and thus seeks to overturn the jury’s verdict. We find that the failure of plaintiff’s counsel to object with specificity to defense counsel’s remarks during closing argument waived any error that might have occurred. See Sawczak v.
Goldenberg, 710 So. 2d 996, 997 (Fla. 4th DCA 1998). implied reference to insurance matters in this
Moreover, the case was not
fundamental error requiring reversal. So. 2d 429, 431 (Fla. 3d DCA 1998).
See Melara v. Cicione, 712
We also find no abuse of discretion in the trial court’s evidentiary rulings. Therefore, we affirm.
