Florida Appeals successfully defended a final order denying Appellant’s rule 1.540 motion to set aside various final and nonfinal orders finding Appellant liable for quantum meruit fees to Appellee law firm, sanctioning Appellant for vexatious litigation conduct, and awarding quantum meruit damages and additional fees and costs to the Appellee. The 6th DCA agreed that Appellant’s continuing contempt of court precluded her from obtaining equitable relief under rule 1.540, that she was not entitled to relief from nonfinal orders, that the challenged final orders were not void, that any relief concerning the prospective application of the judgments under 1.540(b)(5) was either waived or unavailable on a monetary award, and that she was not entitled to an evidentiary hearing.
