Update on Padgett, aka Florida Workers' Advocates v. State of Florida

Monday came and went. On March 30, 2015 the Third District Court of Appeal heard oral argument in the case of Florida Workers' Advocates v. State of Florida. The case was once Cortez v. Velda Farms, but those two parties are no longer involved. There is an intervenor named Elsa Padgett; thus this case is often referred to as "the Padgett case."  

I listened to the argument on Tuesday. If you are interested, it can be accessed here and put case number 14-2062 in the search box. Sorry, but that is the most direct way to get to the video, and it does not stream, it will download for you to watch. 

The question on many people's minds now is when the court will rule. Others question what the likely outcome is. The answer is the same to both questions from where I sit, that is "I don't know."  

There are a variety of interesting issues raised by both sides in the oral argument. It is well worth the few minutes it takes to watch.
