Suspended Sheriff Scott Israel case going directly to Supreme Court

The legal argument over whether Gov. Ron DeSantis had the legal authority to suspend Broward Sheriff Scott Israel is going directly to the Florida Supreme Court.

There won’t be an intermediate stop at the appeals court after the 4th District Court of Appeal on Wednesday certified the case as a matter “of great public importance.”

The issue stems from a lawsuit Israel filed challenging DeSantis’ authority to remove the sheriff from office.

Israel’s attorneys Benedict P Kuehne and Stuart Kaplan said their client welcomes the opportunity to get a definitive ruling from the state’s high court., 954-356-4550 or Twitter @browardpolitics
