Judge Rejects Request To Force DeSantis To Testify

For some reason, liberals thought they were going to be able to force Republican Ron DeSantis to testify.

A federal judge has just ruled that they're 100% incorrect.

It's possible that this ruling may be reexamined during the trial next month, but for now at least one federal judge is ruling in favor of Governor Ron.

DeSantis suspended a Hillsborough County prosecutor, Andrew Warren, for violating the state's abortion law. The Florida governor made the decision after Andrew Warren loudly and publicly vowed not to follow certain abortion-related laws.

The law Warren specifically promised to disregard was the one saying that abortions in Florida were not allowed "after 15 weeks of gestation."

DeSantis announced the suspension of Warren during a live televised press conference when he was seeking reelection during his gubernatorial campaign. His press secretary said that the announcement would probably set off "the liberal media meltdown of the year."

Warren alleges that DeSantis violated Warren's right to free speech when he suspended Warren.

DeSantis' team does NOT agree. They're arguing "the governor 'reasonably construed' Warren's public statement's to indicate he would attempt to refuse enforcement of state law or that he was ignorant of his official duties."

In my humble opinion, thinking Warren was not about to follow the law after hearing Warren publicly declaring he wouldn't follow the law does in fact seem a way to "reasonably construe" the statements.

Warren's legal team has said they "might" call DeSantis to testify depending on how the trial goes.
