Partner Robbie Kaplan joined NPR to discuss Monday’s settlement resolving a challenge to Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law. The settlement restores the ability of students, teachers, and others in Florida schools to speak and write freely about sexual orientation and gender identity in class participation and schoolwork. It also reinstates gay-straight alliances and other programs that were previously canceled under the law. Any attempts to restrict discussions on these topics are now prohibited by the state of Florida.

“That is now completely and clearly off the table. And anyone who tries to use the law to do any of those things, the state of Florida has said as clearly as it possibly can in a memo that went to all school boards - if not yesterday, today - saying that is not OK.”

The Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP legal team includes Roberta Kaplan, John Quinn, Joshua Matz, Kate Doniger, and Brandon Trice.
