Florida State’s Attorney Andrew Warren Sues Gov. Ron Desantis Over Suspension
The feud began after Warren was suspended after posting that he would refuse cases where he had to prosecute Floridians over DeSantis’ 15-week abortion ban.
Warren argued further that the move was meant as an act of political sabotage and violated the state’s constitution. His complaint said the governor violated his First Amendment rights and that he was silenced over his position on abortion.
“He’s violated the Florida Constitution by removing me from office without any legal justification, throwing out the results of a fair and free election,” Warren said.

DeSantis’ office released a statement and said the suspended state’s attorney’s case was “baseless” and had no true legal standing.
“It’s not surprising Warren, who was suspended for refusing to follow the law, would file a legally baseless lawsuit challenging his suspension. We look forward to responding in court,” DeSantis’ office said
Together, we will fight Ron DeSantis' abuse of power and restore the will of the voters. I hope you'll join me.
