SUMMARY OF ARGUMENT
The district court in this case, as in Wartels, read the Art. X, § 4(a)(1), Fla.
Const. definition of homestead to exclude cooperative apartments, while the Fifth
District in Southern Walls read the same definition to include cooperative
apartments. This is an express and direct conflict. This Court should accept
jurisdiction to settle for all owners of cooperatives whether or not the Legislature
was correct in telling them that they own a form of real property.
