After whistleblowers revealed evidence of inmate abuse and cover-ups at the Florida Department of Corrections, the state agreed to settle a retaliation lawsuit for $800,000. On Trimmel Gomes’ latest episode of The Rotunda, attorney Ryan Andrews who handled the case discusses another pending lawsuit with a whistleblower who sought First Amendment right protections for sharing his story on The Rotunda in 2015. Gomes also tells the story of “Charlie’s Angels” on Florida’s Supreme Court with U.S. Rep.-elect Charlie Crist, D- St. Petersburg and Justice James E.C. Perry who is retiring at the end of the year.
Gomes Media Strategies is pleased to offer The Rotunda a nonpartisan, public affairs podcast about the people and issues shaping Florida politics. The Rotunda is weekly program providing a series of timely, substantive interviews with some of Florida’s most important leaders in state government and the people who cover them. The program is made available to all members of the Florida Press Association.
