T.J.M vs. STATE OF FLORIDA
Supreme Court of Florida
STATE OF FLORIDA,
[February 8, 2007]
We have for review T.J.M. v. State, 907 So. 2d 618 (Fla. 5th DCA 2005), in which the Fifth District Court of Appeal cited V.K.E. v. State, 902 So. 2d 343 (Fla. 5th DCA 2005), quashed, 934 So. 2d 1276 (Fla. 2006), and certified the same question as was then pending review in this Court in V.K.E. We have jurisdiction. See art. V, § 3(b)(3)-(4), Fla. Const.; Jollie v. State, 405 So. 2d 418 (Fla. 1981).
We have since quashed V.K.E. and answered the certified question in a manner contrary to the decision presently on review. See V.K.E. v. State, 934 So. 2d 1276 (Fla. 2006). We have thus determined, and respondent agrees, that we should exercise our jurisdiction to grant the petition for review, quash the decision under review, and remand to the Fifth District Court of Appeal for reconsideration upon application of this Court's decision in V.K.E.
It is so ordered.
