A federal judge will not reinstate Andrew Warren as Hillsborough County State Attorney, though he thrashed Gov. Ron DeSantis for violating Warren’s First Amendment rights.
U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle dismissed the suit from the Democratic State Attorney against the Republican Governor. He ruled the 11th Amendment of the Constitution, which limits federal autonomy over states, stops the court from acting.
Hinkle opened saying the Governor based the suspension on false allegations. He said the suspension violated Florida’s Constitution and was based in part on a violation of the First Amendment, but there appears to be little consequence.
