Associated Press Release

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — American Civil Liberties Union officials say Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Legislature have mounted an unprecedented attack on civil liberties over the past two years.

The ACLU of Florida issued a report Thursday on actions by the group and others in the courts of law and public opinion and at the ballot box to protect voting, free speech and other rights.

The organization has been involved in 11 lawsuits as part of that effort. They include four still pending cases challenging drug testing of welfare applicants and state employees, a limitation on doctors asking patients about gun ownership and a purge of noncitizens from voting rolls.

An ACLU lawyer said Florida has been “kind of a petri dish” for social experiments being copied and watched by other states.
