    USARK Victory - Florida law unconstitutional

    THIS is why it's important to join USARK. Once again, they have gone to court on reptile keepers' behalf.

    From the USARK press release:

    "We have some news... good news. The judge agreed with USARK FL and found that SB1414 is in fact unconstitutional! We will post full details soon but the judge granted our motion for summary judgment and now we just await his formal order stating the same. Thank you to everyone who supported us. Please keep the donations coming! We must still pay for this lawsuit and future actions. What a win!
    NOTE: This will take a few days to all be finalized and for FWC to rescind their Executive Order. We also do not know if FWC will appeal."

    It's been awhile since I noticed a case for appeal, but they would have 20-30 days from the date the judge denied their motion to notice the appeal. While this is good news, let's see what they decide to do. It is costly to go on appeal for both sides, and another lengthy process until the appellate court makes a decision.
