- A federal appeals court on Thursday halted Florida’s controversial “Stop WOKE” Act and barred its enforcement at public universities pending appeal.
- The Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) had filed suit in September of 2022, challenging the law.
- U.S. District Judge Mark Walker in November halted its enforcement, calling the law “dystopian.” His ruling excoriated the Florida government with quotes from George Orwell’s “1984” and reference to the Washington Post’s slogan “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”
