    A U.S. appeals court has blocked Florida from enforcing a ban on Chinese citizens owning homes or land in the state against two Chinese nationals who were in the process of buying property when the law was adopted.

    A panel of the Atlanta-based 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said on Thursday the individuals were likely to prevail on claims that Florida’s ban violates a federal law governing real estate purchases by foreign nationals.

    Another Loss for Gov Dipstick

    Florida’s “anti-woke” law limiting the concepts employers can espouse in mandatory corporate diversity training unconstitutionally infringes on companies’ free speech rights, a federal appeals court ruled.

    The decision Monday from a three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit upholds an August 2022 federal district court’s ruling that blocked the law’s workplace restrictions from taking effect on the ground that they violated the First Amendment.

    Opponents of the law, including Florida-based wedding registry business Honeyfund.com Inc., sued over its effects on free speech, also alleging it was unconstitutionally vague under the 14th Amendment. The state’s attorney general defended it with the argument that it regulated employers’ conduct—not speech—by banning them from requiring employee attendance at meetings where specific race- and gender-related concepts were taught.

    “The State of Florida seeks to bar employers from holding mandatory meetings for their employees if those meetings endorse viewpoints the state finds offensive,” Judge Britt C. Grant wrote for the Eleventh Circuit panel. “But meetings on those same topics are allowed if speakers endorse viewpoints the state agrees with, or at least does not object to. This law, as Florida concedes, draws its distinctions based on viewpoint—the most pernicious of dividing lines under the First Amendment.”

    Judges Andrew L. Brasher and Charles R. Wilson joined with Grant in the unanimous decision.

    Florida state legislators passed the law in 2022 at the urging of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), part of the governor’s self-declared “war on woke,” which followed a trend among red states to ban the teaching of critical race theory and similar concepts in schools. Florida’s measure went a step further by also restricting how private-sector employers train their workers.

    The Florida law banned employers from mandating that workers attend meetings where the company endorses specific concepts, including that members of one race or sex are morally superior to others, are inherently racist or sexist, or should feel guilty about past actions by other members of their race or sex. Violations are treated as discrimination under the state’s civil rights law.

    The court rejected Florida’s argument that the law was a restriction on conduct, and subsequently found the state couldn’t satisfy the “strict scrutiny” standard of showing its restriction on speech was “narrowly tailored to serve compelling state interests.”

    “Given our ‘profound national commitment to the principle that debate on public issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide-open,’ the answer is clear: Florida’s law exceeds the bounds of the First Amendment,” Grant wrote, quoting from the Supreme Court’s 1964 decision in New York Times Co. v. Sullivan. “No matter how controversial the ideas, allowing the government to set the terms of the debate is poison, not antidote.”

    Judge Mark E. Walker of the US District Court for the Northern District of Florida had blocked the workplace training restrictions as well as similar limits on instruction in university classrooms, but he allowed the limits on K-12 classroom instruction to take effect.

    The state is separately appealing Walker’s injunction of the university restrictions to the Eleventh Circuit.

    “Speech codes have no place in American society, and elected officials have no business censoring the speech of business owners simply because they don’t agree with what’s being expressed,” said Shalini Goel Agarwal, an attorney at Protect Democracy, who represented the plaintiffs challenging the Florida law. “Barring employers from engaging in speech that powerful politicians don’t like is a move straight out of the authoritarian playbook.”

    The court “held that companies have a right to indoctrinate their employees with racist and discriminatory ideologies,” said Jeremy Redfern, press secretary for DeSantis. “We disagree with the Court’s opinion that employers can require employees to be taught—as a condition of employment—that one race is morally superior to another race. The First Amendment protects no such thing.”

    The state is reviewing all options for a potential appeal, he said.
