South Florida

Our apologies

The lawsuit could have an impact far outside the well-to-do South Florida town.

The content previously published in this space has been removed.

As it turns out, Florida Politics was unable to independently verify some of the claims made in the lawsuit previously referenced here. Because FP aims for the highest journalistic standards — and because the issue previously described here is unworthy of the attention of a statewide news outlet — we have, in an abundance of caution, removed the content previously published in this space. We have also retracted a draft of a legal document we received, the contents of which have been challenged.

We apologize to John and Margaret Thornton, the subjects of the reporting previously published in this space, for any mischaracterization of them the reporting may have caused.
