Lawsuit Seeks To Halt Return Of Bear Hunting

By JIM TURNER OF THE NEWS SERVICE OF FLORIDA • 14 hours ago

The lawsuit doesn’t ask for a judge to halt the commission from offering the permits. However, Speak Up Wekiva and groups supporting the lawsuit — the Sierra Club, the Massachusetts-based Environmental Action, the League of Women Voters of Florida and the Center for Biological Diversity — want the state agency to suspend permitting until the lawsuit is settled.

“If they do sell the permits, and the hunt is ruled unconstitutional, they’ll have to pay everyone back, and that could be very time-consuming,” said Chuck O’Neal, a Longwood resident and member of Speak Up Wekiva whose name also appears on the lawsuit.

Smith said permitting remains on schedule to begin Monday.
