The Florida Constitution Revision Commission submitted a proposed constitutional revision (Amendment 8) related to public education along with a ballot title and summary to the Department of State for inclusion on the 2018 General Election Ballot. The League of Women Voters of Florida filed suit in the trial court claiming the ballot title and summary are defective. The trial court agreed that the ballot language would mislead the public regarding its purpose and effect and ordered it removed from the ballot. On appeal, the First District Court of Appeal certified the case to this Court for immediate review as being of great public importance.
