RECENT RELEASES - FLORIDA SUPREME COURT
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT--INITIATIVE PETITION--REGULATION OF MARIJUANA USE. The Court found that the ballot summary for a proposed constitutional amendment which would regulate the use of marijuana is affirmatively misleading. Consequently, the proposed amendment was disapproved for placement on the ballot.
FAMILY LAW FORMS--AMENDMENTS. The Court adopted five revised forms relating to petitions and temporary and final injunctions for protection against domestic violence so that the forms would be in accord with the provisions of chapter 741, as amended by the Legislature in 2020. The revision of a sixth form, 12.980(b)(2), while not prompted by legislation, was deemed necessary to clarify the form, and this amended form was also adopted by the Court. The amendments became effective immediately upon release of the Court's opinion. Interested persons were provided a seventy-five-day period within which to file comments with the Court.
