Conveyances to Foreign Entities
Part III, Chapter 692, Florida Statutes


Is this law legal? Is anyone challenging the constitutionality of the law?
Yes. A federal lawsuit was filed in the United State District Court for the Northern District of Florida, challenging the law on equal protection grounds, vagueness, and other grounds. The ACLU filed the lawsuit on behalf of Chinese nationals residing in the U.S., i.e., people who are not U.S. citizens or permanent residents whose “domicile” may be considered China. The U.S. government has filed papers supporting the ACLU’s position. The plaintiffs filed an emergency motion for a preliminary injunction on June 6, 2023, which is scheduled for hearing on July 18, 2023.
