Federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction in our case against Florida's anti-protest law, #HB1, thereby blocking a key provision of the law from being enforced while the litigation continues.

IT IS ORDERED:

1. Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction, ECF No. 64, is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. The motion is DENIED as moot with respect to Defendant Moody. The motion is GRANTED with respect to Defendants DeSantis, McNeil, Tony, and Williams.

2. Defendants must take no steps to enforce Florida Statutes § 870.01(2) (2021) as it pertains to the definition of “riot,” until otherwise ordered. This preliminary injunction binds Defendants DeSantis, McNeil, Tony, and Williams and their officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys—and others in active concert or participation with any of them—who receive actual notice of this injunction by personal service or otherwise.

3. This injunction is effective immediately, without the posting of security, but Defendants may seek an order requiring the posting of security.

SO ORDERED on September 9, 2021.

Chief United States District Judge
