This chapter addresses a number of issues that found their way into the courts of the Middle District from 1980 to 1988. Included are income tax evasion, environmental and wrongful death litigation, prison-overcrowding, and voting and employment discrimination. The chapter also chronicles some of the first handling of disputes arising out of the AIDS epidemic in the United States. In 1982 after Profitt v. Wainwright, the state of Florida resumed executions under the state’s new death penalty statutes. This chapter documents the increased burden the death penalty habeas litigation exerted on the court, and provides examples of several important cases. The chapter then covers desegregation litigation from 1968 to 1980. After summarizing relevant higher court cases since Swann, the litigation in Manatee, Orange, Marion, and Polk is discussed. The chapter then turns to employment and voting rights litigation the Middle District courts. Cases involving the City of Apopka, Florida, Lake County, Nassau County, and the City of Jacksonville are discussed.
