(FeaturedNews.com) – A federal judge has ruled in favor of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ administration, stating that the “Stop WOKE Act” was not in violation of any court orders. The act sought to stop colleges from teaching or promoting “woke” concepts, such as critical race theory, on campus.

U.S. District Judge Mark E. Walker stated that the court has determined that the act was not in violation of the preliminary injunction and that if it had been, they would have compelled the administration to comply.

The Plaintiffs who filed the motion against the Act, commonly referred to as either the “Stop Wrongs to Our Kids and Employees Act” or “Stop WOKE Act,” argued that the DeSantis administration had so far not complied with a preliminary injunction that blocked parts of the law from being enforced. This was due to Chris Spencer, Florida’s chief of the Office of Policy and Budget, requesting from colleges a comprehensive list of campus activities, classes, modules, programs, and staff that have any connection with woke theories related to diversity, equity, and critical race theory.

The bill by DeSantis was originally introduced in December 2021, and was signed into law in April 2022. According to the new law, both schools and corporations are not allowed to force students or employees into training that promotes or advances these theories or to make them believe certain theories regarding sex, color, race, and national origin.

Walker had been the one to issue the temporary injunction last November. He also stated that professors and education are a critical part of having a well-functioning democracy and that this was “positively dystopian.”
