Florida Senate Bill 620: Should a Business Be Allowed to Sue Government for Losses Caused by an Ordinance?

The Unexpected Answer Found in Medieval Jewish Law

Business owners may soon have a new tool to fight city hall according to legislation being pushed for the coming legislative session in Tallahassee. Senate Bill 620 would allow a business to sue local government if its actions caused a 15% drop in the business’s income or profit.

A 9th-century Jewish law case has a precedent for exploring the validity of such a bill. The case deals with loss splitting in the face of an act of God. Join Rabbi Birnholz to study the case and offer your thoughts for what should be a lively discussion.
