11th Circuit Upholds Florida State Statute that Bans Academic Travel to Cuba

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit has upheld a Florida state law that restricts students, faculty, and researchers at state colleges and universities from traveling to Cuba and any other country on the U.S. government list of states that support terrorism.  Those countries are Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.  Click here for a copy of the ruling.  The Faculty Senate at Florida International University had challenged the law (with the help of the ACLU) on first amendment grounds.
