Case Summary

This is a case challenging the Pasco County Sheriff's Office's (The Sheriff's Office) "Intelligence-Led Policing Program." The plaintiffs, suing Sheriff Nocco, alleged that the under the program, the Sheriff's Office compiled a list of individuals it believed likely to commit future crimes and then subjected those individuals and their families to “relentless pursuit, arrest, and prosecution” in violation of the First Amendment freedom of assembly and the Fourteenth Amendment Due Process Clause…

This is a case challenging the Pasco County Sheriff's Office's (The Sheriff's Office) "Intelligence-Led Policing Program." The plaintiffs, suing Sheriff Nocco, alleged that the under the program, the Sheriff's Office compiled a list of individuals it believed likely to commit future crimes and then subjected those individuals and their families to “relentless pursuit, arrest, and prosecution” in violation of the First Amendment freedom of assembly and the Fourteenth Amendment Due Process Clause. They also claimed violations for their Fourth Amendment protection from unreasonable search and seizure. Attorneys from the Institute for Justice represented plaintiffs in their suit and Judge Steven D. Merryday presided over the case.

The plaintiffs included individuals identified as "Targeted Persons" by the Sheriff's Office, as well as individuals whose children the Sheriff's Office identified as "Targeted Persons." They alleged that deputies within the Sheriff's Office came to their homes and, for example, threatened them with arrest if they refused to comply with unwarranted searches of their homes, arrested plaintiffs and their family members for minor violations on their private property. In at least one instance, the deputies told the plaintiffs they were following direct orders from Sheriff Nocco.

In April, 2021, the defendant moved to dismiss for failure to state a claim. In August, 2021, the motion was granted-in part, dismissing one count brought by the plaintiffs. The court provided the plaintiffs an opportunity to correct their complaint, and on 27 August, 2021, the plaintiffs submitted an amended complaint. The defendant, in response, filed another motion to dismiss, specifically relating to Count V of the amended complaint, alleging violations of the Fourteenth Amendment Equal Protection Clause for all Plaintiffs.

As of 5 October, 2021, the case was ongoing.
