Condominium Ass’n of La Mer Estates, Inc. v. Bank of New York Mellon Corp., — So.3d —-, 2014 WL 620238 (Fla. 4th DCA 2014).

Receding from existing Fourth District precedent and its prior decision in this case, the Fourth District holds that a default final judgment based on a complaint which fails to state a cause of action is voidable, not void, and must be attacked within one year under the requirements of Florida Rule of Civil Procedure 1.540. Conflict is certified with decisions from the First and Third Districts as to this issue of law.
