FRS Litigation Update from the General Counsel’s Office

On March 28, 2012 the Florida Supreme Court certified our case as “a question of great importance” and accepted jurisdiction to hear the appeal. This certification allows our appeal to bypass the intermediate Appellate Court and have our case heard for immediate resolution.

Briefs and replies will be submitted in May and June of this year and oral arguments are currently scheduled for September 5. A final judgment is expected to follow soon thereafter.

The I.U.P.A. remains steadfast that SB 2100’s is unconstitutional and will continue to fight to have Circuit Court’s likewise ruling upheld. The I.U.P.A. continues to represent the interests of all its Members, protecting the benefits of Law Enforcement Officers in Florida and throughout the Country.
