A federal appeals court has agreed with a lower court that drug testing all state employees could be unconstitutional. The drug testing rule was put in place by Governor Rick Scott in 2010 through an Executive Order, but was challenged. A district court placed an injunction on the order, essentially invalidating it.
But the ruling, by a three-judge panel in Atlanta says the district court's injunction was too broad. The panel left room for drug testing some state employees, if the Governor can make a case its necessary.
