The order has finally come back from the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and they have DENIED Miami-Dade County’s request for a rehearing! This is great news, it means that our Sex Offender Residency Restriction (SORR) challenge in Miami-Dade County can now proceed, it means that the 11th Circuit is finding, consistently with other federal circuits across the country, that there are constitutional issues with SORRs, and it means that there just might be relief at the end of the tunnel for the 250 individuals living alongside the railroad tracks in Miami-Dade and the thousands of other individuals in Florida who are legislated into homelessness because of these ineffective laws.
This is great news! So much appreciation goes out to the ACLU and everyone who has supported this battle!!!
