I hope this newsletter finds you doing well. In the business section of today’s print edition, the Tampa Bay Times has run a story on our constitutional challenge to Florida’s pay-to-play eviction law. I wanted to make sure to share this story with you, which can be read HERE.
This is an important fight not just for our client, who is profiled in the story, but for tenants all across our state who are legally barred from defending themselves because of the unfortunate fact that they are poor.
Our state’s constitution guarantees access to courts to all of our people, no matter how much money you have in your bank account.
As we continue this fight to make our constitution’s promise a reality in our state, I want to thank those of you who have supported our efforts. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “The time is always right to do right.”
I hope you have a good Sunday. Thank you for reading.
Until next time,
Ryan C. Torrens, Esq.
