A suit challenging a Florida law that limits discussion of sexual orientation in schools was dismissed by a federal judge.

US District Judge Allen Winsor in Tallahassee last week said the suit by Equality Florida over the law championed by Governor Ron DeSantis was legally deficient. But he gave the organization 14 days to file a new complaint if it should decide to do so.
