Today the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals denied the appeal of an out of state registrant who was kept on Florida’s public registry long after he moved out of the state. The appeal (and underlying Trial Court decision) were not based on the merits of an “out of state” challenge, but on a technicality. The registrant left the state in 2004 and did not bring his lawsuit until 2018, far beyond the 4-year statute of limitations in which he could bring a lawsuit.
The decision was not unexpected and not detrimental to anyone wanting to bring an out-of-state challenge, it was just a reminder that suits need to be timely brought.
