In looking at the Florida statutes. How do you announce them in court. For example...Florida statute 83.53. Do you announce it by that number if it pertains. Or do you announce it as Florida statute 83 part 53. Or eiter? Thanks

My response:

First, you stand up, bow and curtsy to the court, and in your best "Curly" imitation, you state: "Your honor, I wish to cite Statute 83.53." A few "nyuck, nyuvks" never hurt either. "Why, sointently !!"

When speaking to a Florida court, it's understood that you are referring to Florida law, unless you want the court to take Judicial Notice of a law or case from another jurisdiction, then you'd say the State name.

I apologize. It was perfect for a little joviality.
