Lead Counsel Speaks After Gov. Scott Vetoes Citrus Canker Appropriation

In early June, Florida Governor Rick Scott vetoed a $37.4 million appropriation to pay Broward and Lee County homeowners in a 16-year citrus canker litigation. The litigation has dragged on for nearly two decades, resulting from the Florida Department of Agriculture’s destruction of over 500,000 healthy, uninfected residential citrus trees under the failed citrus canker eradication program.

Now, the attorney at the helm is speaking out.

“With the stroke of a pen, Governor Scott disregarded the letter and spirit of Florida’s Constitution for his own personal political agenda,” said Lead Counsel Bobby Gilbert. “Every Floridian who believes in the constitution and private property rights should understand that the governor is working against their interests.”

Bobby led the litigation in support of Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen, Miami-based firm for medical malpractice, personal injury, complex litigation, appellate law, and more.

Bobby was featured in nearly 10 outlets statewide; you can read more details of the case in the articles below:
