The Florida Supreme Court in the case of DEBRA LAIZURE,
Petitioner, vs. AVANTE AT LEESBURG, INC., et al., Respondents. [February 14, 2013] reviewed the question of whether or not beneficiaries in a wrongful death claim can be bound by a validly executed ADR agreement.  The Florida Fith District Ct. of Appeals found that the wrongful death claim was derivative of the common law negligence claim and therefore should be subject to the ADR per the contract.  Upon review the Florida Supreme Court affirmed this ruling.
