RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
ELECTIONS--RESTORATION OF VOTING RIGHTS OF CONVICTED FELONS In an advisory opinion to the Governor, the Court concluded that for the purpose of the constitutional amendment that restores voting rights of certain convicted felons "upon completion of all terms of sentence," the phrase "all terms of sentence" encompasses legal financial obligations ordered by the sentencing court.
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT--INITIATIVE PETITION--CITIZENSHIP REQUIREMENT TO VOTE IN FLORIDA ELECTIONS. The Court approved for placement on the ballot a proposed amendment titled "Citizenship Requirement to Vote in Florida Elections," upon finding that the proposed amendment complies with the single-subject requirement, and that the ballot title and summary comply with section 101.161(1), Florida Statutes.
CRIMINAL LAW--INVESTIGATIVE COSTS--REQUEST. A request for the imposition of investigative costs pursuant to section 938.27(1), Florida Statutes (2019), cannot be made for the first time on remand. Finding the statute's language clear and unambiguous, the Court held that the State's request for investigative costs must occur before the judgment is rendered.
