FL (2nd DCA) Reverses Foreclosure Judgment Due to Inadequate Proof of Amount Due, But Remands Without Involuntary Dismissal

2nd DCA reversed a final judgment of foreclosure, holding that the mortgagee failed to properly establish the amount of its damages. the court, however, affirmed State Farm had established its standing as the holder of the note and mortgage, and the default of the mortgagor/borrower under the note.  The borrower failed to move for dismissal at the close of evidence, the proper remedy was reversal and remand, rather than involuntary dismissal.
