The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida is suing Florida Gov. Rick Scott over ordering drug te – 844-292-1318 legal aid Tuscaloosa Alabama

HEADLINE: ACLU challenges drug testing of Fla. state workers
—————————————
CAPTION: The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida is suing Florida Gov. Rick Scott over ordering drug testing for all state employees, regardless of suspicion. (June 1)
—————————————-
(sot: Howard Simon, Executive Director, ACLU of Florida)
We only have the capacity to deal with about 2 a week. And this Governor and this legislature is manufacturing legal challenges. I want to say this should be a civics lesson for the people of Florida. Thank God the entire government is not run by the governor’s office or by the legislature. We have a third branch of government, which is the courts and it’s now time for the courts to step up and protect the citizens of Florida from the abuse of their rights.
The state’s own test showed that welfare recipients don’t have a rate of drug abuse any more so than people who are not on welfare. Nothing had demonstrated that state employees are drug abusers. The only thing that has changed is the radical politics of this governor, not welfare recipients and not state employees.

Civil Forfeiture: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO) – 844-292-1318 Wyoming legal aid

Did you know police can just take your stuff if they suspect it’s involved in a crime? They can!
It’s a shady process called “civil asset forfeiture,” and it would make for a weird episode of Law and Order.
