JUSTICES EYE ‘DANGEROUS INSTRUMENTALITY’ QUESTION: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments in two cases, including a dispute stemming from a jobsite accident that severed a man’s finger. The man, Anthony Newton, sued Caterpillar Financial Services Corp., which leased equipment known as a “multi-terrain loader” to a hauling company. Newton’s finger was severed because of an accident involving the loader, and he alleged vicarious liability by Caterpillar because the loader was a “dangerous instrumentality.” Lower courts ruled against Newton, leading him to take the issue to the Supreme Court. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)
BALLOT PROPOSALS CONSIDERED: The Style and Drafting Committee of the Florida Constitution Revision Commission is scheduled to consider a series of proposed constitutional amendments for the November ballot. The committee plays a key role in packaging and revising proposals. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Reed Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)
EXPRESS LANES EYED: The Florida Department of Transportation will hold a public hearing related to a study on easing congestion on Interstate 95 in Jacksonville.
