Best Family Attorney Tampa – Gary Dolgin Quoted in Tampa Bay Times Article About Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren

The Tampa Bay Times requested that Gary Dolgin give his professional legal opinion regarding the 59-page ruling written by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals regarding Andrew Warren’s case.

The story was on the front page of The Tampa Bay Times E-Newspaper this past Thursday.

In August 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis suspended Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren accusing him of “incompetence” and “neglect of duty.”

Warren’s request to be reinstated had been declined by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle.

However, the 59-page opinion, authored by 11th Circuit Judge Jill Pryor critiqued Hinkle’s reasoning and stated that Warren’s suspension violated his First Amendment right to free speech.

In reviewing the opinion, Gary Dolgin is quoted as saying “The appeals court specifically directed the lower court to re-examine whether DeSantis would have suspended Warren based on something he did that was not protected by the First Amendment. That includes Warren’s performance and specifically his policies on bike stops and low-level offenses.”

Gary continues by saying, “My reading of this opinion says that he could potentially only remain suspended if the district court makes a determination that DeSantis would have suspended him solely for these policies. When the case comes back in front of the lower court, the burden of proof will be on DeSantis to show he would have suspended Warren based on those factors.”
