Lawsuit Updates

Our lawsuit (complaint) has been filed. The complaint is accompanied by a motion for temporary injunction (AKA injunctive relief or preliminary injunction). You can view the briefs below. We will provide more information soon.


We are filing this lawsuit on behalf of all responsible Florida herpetoculturists. We are a community and this affects all of us (even if your species of interest was not yet banned). Responsible keepers must support each other. This will be expensive and all donations to USARK FL at this time go directly toward this lawsuit. Our Board has received no compensation since our organization was formed. All monies go toward our fight to protect your freedoms.


At this time, we need donations! This lawsuit will be expensive and we have retained one of Florida's top law firms, Holland & Knight. We could not have a better firm and team representing us.
