Robert Scavone Jr. ’12 and Daniela Abratt ’15 debate the scope of Marsy’s Law on Summarily – A Podcast for Busy Lawyers. Robert is an appellate lawyer at Florida Appeals and the host of Summarily. Daniela is an associate at Thomas & LoCicero.

Marsy’s Law is a provision of the Florida Constitution that grants crime victims certain rights, including the right to “prevent the disclosure of information or records that could be used to locate or harass the victim[.]” Robert and Daniela discuss whether police officers should be permitted to invoke Marsy’s Law when they are victimized while on duty. The case is now before the Florida Supreme Court, with a decision expected in 2023.

Robert also recently spoke with Antony Page, the Dean of FIU Law, about the future of legal education.
