This case, filed on March 31, 2022, challenged Florida House Bill 1557, the Florida statute widely known as the "Don't Say Gay" law. H.B. 1557 banned any school instruction on "sexual orientation and gender identity." Individual plaintiffs were made up of organizations, students, parents, and teachers in Florida. They brought this suit under § 1983 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida and alleged constitutional and statutory violation. Specifically, plaintiffs alleged that H.B. 1557 violated the First Amendment right to receive information, its guarantee of free expression, and its right to be free from overly broad laws that restrict speech. Plaintiffs also alleged constitutional claims of vagueness and equal protection violations. As for statutory violations, plaintiffs alleged that H.B. 1557 violated Title IX. Plaintiffs sought declaratory and injunctive relief to prevent H.B. 1557 from ever taking effect plus damages for harms suffered prior to enforcement. The case was assigned to U.S. District Court Judge Allen Winsor.

This case is on-going as of April 3, 2022.
