A federal judge has moved to dismiss former Hillsborough County State
Attorney Andrew Warren's case against Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who
suspended Warren from office in 2022 over neglect of duty and
Last August, DeSantis suspended Warren via executive order for "neglect
of duty," after the prosecutor declared he would not prosecute anyone
who violates state abortion restrictions, nor would he prosecute those
who violate prohibitions against certain types of gender-transition
treatment for minors.
U.S. Judge Robert Hinkle's ruling Friday found that DeSantis' decision
to suspend Warren violated the U.S. Constitution and the Florida state Constitution, but the judge still upheld the suspension.
