We  reverse the summary final judgment entered in favor of appellee.   The bank did not file evidence of the assignment of the mortgage and a  lost or misplaced note affidavit until the day of the summary judgment  hearing.   Florida  Rule  of  Civil  Procedure  1.510(c)  provides  that  a  summary judgment movant  shall  serve  the  motion  at  least  20  days before  the  time fixed for the hearing, and  shall  also  serve at that time  copies  of  any summary  judgment  evidence  on which  the  movant relies that has not already been filed with the court.
 
(Emphasis added); see also Mack v. Commercial Indus. Park, Inc., 541 So. 
2d 800, 800 (Fla. 4th DCA 1989).  The obvious purpose of that rule is to  give the party opposing summary judgment time to analyze the evidence and “controvert the factual basis of the motion.”  Marlar v. Quincy State  Bank,  463  So.  2d  1 2 3 3 ,   1233  (Fla.  1st  DCA  1985) (citation  omitted).   The untimely  filings  hindered  appellants’  efforts  to  defend the lawsuit.
