On June 17, 2016, Jamal lead a CLE discussion about the decision from the United States District Court of Florida – American Home Assurance Company v. Weaver Aggregate Transport, Inc. In this case, the court failed to protect a bank’s perfected security interest in a deposit account that it maintained for the debtor as against a subsequent garnishing judgment creditor. In the court’s view, in order for the bank to preserve its priority with respect to a deposit account, the bank not only needed to declare a default prior to receiving a writ of garnishment, but must also have promptly pursued its default remedies. Jamal discussed the potential drafting and policy implications of this decision.
