First District Court of Appeal – State of Florida
1D21-3905 Larry Eugene Faison v. State of Florida
(January 10, 2023)

Florida Supreme Court Oral Argument
SC21-651 City of Tallahassee, Florida v. Florida Police Benevolent Association, Inc.
(December 7, 2022)

Case Description:

The issue here is whether—in certain instances—the names of police officers involved in use-of-force incidents can be protected from public disclosure per the Florida constitutional provision known as Marsy’s Law. After two separate incidents in which Tallahassee police officers responded to threats against their lives by shooting and killing their assailants, the Florida Police Benevolent Association (FPBA) filed a motion to stop the City of Tallahassee from releasing the officers’ names. The FBPA argued that the officers were victims under Marsy’s Law and thus entitled to anonymity. The trial court denied the motion, but the First District Court of Appeal reversed, finding that nothing in the text of Marsy’s Law prohibits its application to police officers, and that such application does not conflict with Florida law or infringe on the constitutional right of citizens to inspect public records. The City of Tallahassee asks this Court for review.
