Florida Legislature passes new evidentiary statute creating rebuttable presumption that internet sourced mapping data should be judicially noticed in civil cases upon a party’s request

On July 1, 2022, new Fla. Stat. § 90.2035 will take effect. Fla. Stat. § 90.2035 provides that upon request of a party to a lawsuit a court may take judicial notice of an image, map, location, distance, calculation, or other information taken from a widely accepted web mapping service, global satellite imaging site, or Internet mapping tool, if such image, map, location, distance, calculation, or other information indicates the date on which the information was created. Subsection 2(b) provides that in civil cases there is a rebuttable presumption that information sought to be judicially noticed under this section should be judicially noticed.
