This Week in South Florida: Shannon Ligon and Aaron Carter Bates

PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – Last week, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed one of his priority bills into law, which was also one of the most controversial.

It was the so-called Anti-Riot Act.

It alters Florida’s crime and punishment statutes governing protests and gatherings.

Monday, it became law. Wednesday, it became the target of a lawsuit.

Shannon Ligon is the plaintiff of the federal lawsuit, filed by attorney Aaron Carter Bates in Central Florida.

They joined This Week in South Florida host Glenna Milberg to discuss, and their conversation can be seen at the top of this page.
