Rewritten concurring opinion in Burton v. State, 49 So.3d 263 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 2010), holding that the trial court applied the incorrect legal rule when it ordered Ms. Burton’s continued hospitalization and involuntary medical treatment, and finding that its order was not supported by competent and substantial evidence as required under Florida law.
