News Regarding Florida Sex Offender Registry Laws
An Amended Complaint was filed this week in the Miami-Dade Sex Offender Residency Restriction challenge.
The original action, which was brought in 2014 by the Florida Action Committee and Individuals who were legislated into homelessness by the Miami-Dade Ordinance which prevented registered sex offenders from living within 2500 feet of a school, was dismissed by the trial court. The ACLU appealed the dismissal to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, which reversed!
Now, the Complaint has been amended to conform to the appellate opinion and to add four additional plaintiffs.
