    You may be right, but it hasnt gone to the supreme court yet...the decision to hold up on the law was by a superior court judge...it still has to get to the supreme court

    If the court order is continuously ignored, the governor should be jailed pending inquiry.

    You would then of course agree that Obama should be jailed for ignoring the declarative judgement issued in Florida...

    Not necessarily...

    1. The case is going straight to the Supreme Court largely because it's not clear whether the court has the authority to void the law (even if it's found that the open meetings law was violated). The appelate panel was of the opinion that whether or not the authority exists depends on whether or not the open meetings law protects a constitutional right.
    2. Even if they decide that judicial review applies, it's not clear that they have the authority to void something that's still in the legislative process, or whether they have to wait until it becomes law (plaintiffs would have to file another suit challenging the law?)
    3. Even if those hurdles are passed, the law says that the court is to void the law only when it deems that the public interest in tossing the law outweighs the public interest in the original action.
