Florida Protects Free Speech
Our Human Rights Commissions now threaten an MP for his speech. Elsewhere, the Florida Supreme Court abolished two old common law doctrines (inavsion of privacy and false light) on the grounds that they interfered with free speech.
The Florida Supreme Court is usually pretty bad on business and tort law issues, but here they got the right answer. Hopefully, our esteemed jurists will get a crack at these cases soon. The problem is that few of the people who get with these human rights complaints appeal or the courts overrule the commissions on very narrow rounds instead of the broader issue of speech.
