    Session I: Covid and Separation of Powers

    Session I: Covid and Separation of Powers

    On January 30, 2021, The Federalist Society's Florida lawyers chapters hosted their annual Florida Chapters Conference at Disney's Yacht and Beach Club Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The first panel of the conference discussed "Covid and Separation of Powers."
    The last year has seen the virtually unprecedented use of government powers at the state and local level in order to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. On what legal authority have these government actors premised their actions, and what can we expect from the federal government should conditions become more volatile and perhaps invite a federal response? What is the proper role for a government of limited powers when facing a once-in-a-century emergency?
    Featuring:

    Joseph Jacquot, Shareholder, Gunster, and former General Counsel to Governor Ron DeSantis
    Hon. Simone Marstiller, Secretary, Florida Department of Juvenile Justice
