May 22, 2024 (1 min read)

Farmworker Assoc. of Fla. v. Moody

"[W]e remain bound by the pronouncements of our Circuit, which has held that the “unlawful transport and movement of aliens” is a fully preempted field. Ga. Latino, 691 F.3d at 1264 ... Bound by Eleventh Circuit precedent, we hold that the Plaintiffs are likely to prevail on their claim that Section 10 of SB 1718 is preempted by federal law—and that they have satisfied each of the other elements of their preliminary-injunction request. ... We therefore ORDER and ADJUDGE as follows: 1. The Motion for Preliminary Injunction [ECF No. 30] is GRANTED. 2. FLA. STAT. § 787.07 is PRELIMINARILY ENJOINED. 3. The Defendants must take no steps to enforce FLA. STAT. § 787.07 until otherwise ordered. This preliminary injunction binds the Defendants and their officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys—and others in active concert or participation with them—who receive actual notice of this injunction by personal service or otherwise."
