No. 1D01-99.

795 So.2d 1107 (2001)

Joel T. LALAS and Maxine T. Lalas, Appellants, v. Paul Wesley BARNES and Eagle Supply, Inc., Appellees.

District Court of Appeal of Florida, First District.

October 4, 2001.

Attorney(s) appearing for the Case

Todd M. LaDouceur of O'Gwen L. King & Associates, P.A., Pensacola, for Appellants.

Cecil L. Davis, Jr., of Fowler, White, Gillen, Boggs, Villareal and Banker, P.A., Tallahassee, for Appellees.


In this appeal from a final judgment rendered in their favor, appellants raise two points. We affirm the first point without discussion. In the second point, appellants argue that the trial court erred in denying their motion to amend the complaint to add punitive damages against one of the defendants, Eagle Supply, Inc., the employer of the tortfeasor. We affirm on this point as well because no basis has been shown for punitive damages against the employer. See Dade County Sch. Bd. v. Radio Station WQBA, 731 So.2d 638, 644-45 (Fla.1999).


WOLF, KAHN and BENTON, JJ., concur.
