The appeals court for Florida’s Gulf coast reversed a final judgment dissolving a marriage, because the trial court erroneously classified three cars as marital assets.  The former husband bought a truck before the marriage.  Each spouse bought a car after the petition for divorce was filed.  Because the filing for divorce is the cut-off for determining whether an asset is marital, all three cars should have been treated as non-marital assets.

The case was Jackson v. Blazer, and the Florida appellate opinion can be read here.
