Tallahassee, Fla. – Today, the Florida Supreme Court issued an opinion affirming Governor Ron DeSantis’ authority to suspend former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel for neglect of duty and incompetence.

“Today’s Florida Supreme Court opinion leaves no doubt of my authority as Governor to suspend a government official for neglect of duty and incompetence,” said Governor DeSantis. “Scott Israel failed in his duties to protect the families and students of Broward County and the time for delay tactics is at an end. I look forward to the Florida Senate resuming the process of formal removal.”
