The City of Homestead is facing a civil rights lawsuit from local activist Dr. Eric McDonough. The lawsuit stems from an incident at a council meeting in which Officer Wright removed him for speaking out against the city’s policies or practices. In addition, McDonough has also been arrested on multiple occasions for protesting and voicing his opinions about the city’s decisions and practices as retaliation.
Dr. Mcdonough believes that these actions by the City of Homestead violate his right to free speech and expression as well as other civil rights protections outlined in law, such as freedom from unreasonable search and seizure or arrest without probable cause. He is now taking legal action to hold them accountable for their actions with oral arguments set before the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals this week.
This case serves not only to protect Mr McDonough's individual rights but those of all citizens living within Homestead and FLorida. If successful this case will complement in clarifying trespass from public spaces with or without appeal Hearings. Many will suffer the same who may be subject to similar treatment if left unchecked by authorities or government officials.. This case will have far-reaching implications beyond just this one instance; it could set precedent that would help protect citizens across Florida when exercising their First Amendment Rights—and possibly even nationwide depending on how it plays out in court proceedings soon.
