Importance of Preserving Issues in Administrative Cases

The 1st DCA has issued an opinion again noting the importance of preserving arguments in administrative proceedings.

We affirm the Final Order of the Office of Financial Regulation in all respects. We highlight Appellant’s Points I and II only, to hold that Appellant did not preserve those issues for appellate review.
“It is well-established that for an issue to be preserved for appeal, it must be raised in the administrative proceeding of the alleged
error.”Dep’t of Bus. & Prof’l Regulation, Constr. Indus. Licensing Bd. v. Harden, 10 So. 3d 647, 649 (Fla. 1st DCA 2009)(citing
