The order was issued by the 4th District Court of Appeals today so it’s being posted prior to our adding commentary in an effort to share this as quickly as possible.
The court voided Senator Lauren Book’s restraining order against Once Fallen’s Derek Logue.
We all knew it was bogus, now the court’s agree!
UPDATE: All the credit MUST go to attorney Gary Edinger, of Benjamin, Aaronson, Edinger & Patanzo for writing an incredible appellate brief. Lots of appreciation to Gary, Jamie Benjamin and Danny Aaronson for defending the First Amendment and for their dedication to Derek’s (and all who fight for reform’s) advocacy.
What’s up with that organizations logo??
I get reminded of that NARSOL teaching where a speaker shared about how the traffickers get ignored, but they chase after the downloaders (low-hanging fruit). If they want to solve this, they’d go after the traffickers. Which is what our current administration is doing, thank goodness. Lauren’s Kids has to be under scrutiny. They need to explain that logo. There’s a long list of traffickers and child porn organizations they’ve caught, but not one word from MSM. ABC fires an anchorwoman for accidentally exposing ABC covering up for Epstein last three years. ABC owned by Disney. Disney cruises that go to Little St. James Island and have a history of protecting Epstein. This isn’t smear and this isn’t gossip. There’s evidence and documents. How about the latest FBI vault release of documents Part 1 of The Finders! This isn’t looking good at all. Finally looking good for the “low-hanging fruit”! Or should I say, the sovereigns.
I’m glad to see that our voices are not always silenced in the public square. Good to see liberty and freedom of speech prevail! Let’s continue to use our strengthening voices to speak truth to the issues, and that with a level head so that no one can malign our message.
As for Senator Book’s objections and fears, as a public figure, she should understand that she has less of an expectation of privacy, especially when she bases her PAC work from her residence. I hope and pray she takes the discomfort she may have felt and uses it to gain empathy for the thousands of families impacted by her registry-related policies, who daily feel the discomfort of shame from a public registry. If she unable to have empathy for certain classes of people, I would be inclined to believe that that is more likely a defect in the Senator’s character than a statement regarding the individuals whose lives she seems so eager to throw into turmoil.
CIKLIN, J., dissents without opinion. The reason there is no opinion from Judge Ciklin is because there was no legal standing for the dissent. It is amazing how many judges rule against the law when they don’t agree with it.
When will the state of Florida be putting into law a tier based registration system?
They have no plan to at this time.
Well done, Derek and your legal team. The judges seemed to be holding their noses as they found for you–but at least they upheld law over personal opinion(s).
How ironic that Drunken Ron’s daughter, a public official no less, dislikes her publicly available information being posted on line, but advocates it for thousands of others. “For thee, but not for me,” seems their mantra.
I sincerely believe that Sin-eater Crook advanced the bill which eventually and retroactively, reduced from five to three days, the time frame to qualify as a so-called “permanent” residence in an attempt to keep Derek out of Florida. Who in their right mind would consider a three or even five day trip, a permanent move? No fu¢king body! Sounds pretty subjective to me. Why didn’t the objective “reasonable person” standard apply to this stupid law?
Interesting theory and one that is arguably plausible. The Books have been using the legislative process for years to benefit themselves and their clients, so this isn’t that outrageous. .
She doesn’t like her home and address being posted….she doesn’t like being talked about on line…while she passes laws to do just that to entire families.
If someone doing that in her opinion gives her the right to law enforcement protection then so shouldn’t registrants get the same protection?
Exactly. They too should get police protection, and their families.
All props go to FAC and to Jamie Benjamin.
That’s one Florida suit down and one to go, and I expect a win on that one as well.
DEREK!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU ACTUALLY FOUND JUSTICE!!!!!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!!!! I can’t even believe a FL court would do its job and go against the Books! I am amazed! You were attacked by them and I think the courts are finally starting to recognize you deserve justice.
If yall notice, this case is reversed on an abuse of discretion standard. The appellate court made clear that the trial court abused its discretion by granting Book’s injunction against Derek. This means that the trial court abused the trust we the people give it to render fair and unbiased decisions. Good for Derek and his lawyer(s) for showing this corruption.
Too bad they couldn’t sue the ¢unt!

YAY! Maybe she’ll get her feelings so hurt that she’ll retire from politics and just go away.
I doubt she will go away. I expect retaliation in the form of more restrictive laws. But I say pile them on.. by revealing their clear intent to punish they will help us bring the whole thing down.
Amen, Lets hope he turns up the fire in continuing to do his work standing up for us. She did accomplish one thing though he was forced not to question her the whole time this was in the courts. I wonder if she will ask about how the privileged get away with light sentences like her father is about to.
Seems the court followed the law but is language was hardly unbiased. These judges seem to still be drinking the “koolaid”. They called his speech despicable even though he is protesting unfair treatment of registrants, not advocating any previous actions one may have committed.
Congrats!. You did not need this bs in your life. You have enough going on. Do yourself a favor though, quit being such a jerk to me and others and perhaps you will avoid another lawsuit the future. Just sayin.
I’m only a jerk to those who insist on acting like one, like Senator Book. If I bash anyone, there’s generally a damned good reason for it.
Congratulations Derek! Your attorney should be lauded for a tremendous success!!!
Or to those who have a different opinion or a different approach… that falls under “damn good reason”, right?
Aw, Mr Butthurt troll is here to spread dissension again. You must be beside yourself seeing your heroine defeated on her own turf right now, especially knowing that I am the victor. That brings a smile to my face. There will be more victories to come so keep those tears rolling.
“ Sen. Lauren Book is all over the place from access to ammunition, funds for homelessness, Medicaid access to breast milk, cat claws, definition of child abuse, school safety, abortion access, reproductive rights, access to hygiene products in schools, access to emergency contraceptives for victims, vaccine exemptions and making coconut patties the Fl state candy. The theme is to paint herself as a protector of children when she’s actually a dangerous predator.” This is a quote from a website I won’t lost here.
Research latest about Private Attorney Kim Picazio and Field Cummings’ arrest. Picazio is tied with Haleigh Cummings and Caylee Anthony. Incriminating things regarding photos of Haleigh in her possession. But that’s nothing. If you research this, you’ll find a connection with Book, Epstein, and Broward County, in general. You’ll know why Book does what she does. You have more than you know.
Why not tell us, rather than have members research?
