On Wednesday, July 5, 2023, the Florida Bar filed a petition with the Supreme Court of Florida seeking a permanent injunction against Leonardo Roth, also known as Leo Roth, and his company Born To Run LLC dba Latam en USA for the unlicensed practice of law.
The case is entitled “The Florida Bar v. Leonardo Roth a/k/a Leo Roth and Born to Run LLC dba Latam en USA” with case no. 20224056.
The Florida Bar has filed a petition for the approval of a stipulation for a permanent injunction against Leonardo Roth, also known as Leo Roth, and Born To Run LLC, doing business as Latam en USA. The petition seeks to permanently enjoin the respondents.
The respondents recognize and consent to the fact that the Florida Bar functions as a governmental entity, and they acknowledge that any expenses imposed on them as a result of this matter should be treated, in accordance with bankruptcy law, as a form of fine, forfeiture, or penalty. Consequently, these costs would not be eligible for discharge in bankruptcy.
The Florida Bar is now requesting the court to grant the injunction, enjoining the respondents and imposing stipulated costs upon them. The stipulated costs, considered in the nature of a fine, forfeiture, or penalty, are not dischargeable under bankruptcy law.
The filing states:
“The Florida Bar requests this Court approve the Stipulation for Permanent Injunction and Stipulated C o sts and issue an In junction permanently and perpetually enjoining Respondent s Leonardo Roth a/k/a Leo Roth and Born To Run LLC dba Latam en USA, as set forth in the Stipulation attached hereto.”
The Petition states:
“WHEREFORE, The Florida Bar respectfully requests that this Court approve the Stipulation for Permanent Injunction and Stipulated Costs and issue an Order enjoining Respondents.”
The court is expected to review the petition and stipulation, and if approved, the respondents will be permanently barred from engaging in any activities related to the practice of law without a valid license.
