A group of plaintiffs from across the state has filed a federal lawsuit against the Stop WOKE Act.

They allege the law, which restricts race-related instruction in schools and businesses, violates their First and Fourteenth Amendment rights. They filed the complaint in U.S. District Court in the Northern District of Florida against Gov. Ron DeSantis, Attorney General Ashley Moody and others, challenging the constitutionality of HB7.

Guest: Jesse Wilkison, an attorney with Sheppard, White, Kachergus, DeMaggio & Wilkison.
