Florida’s Right to Privacy
The State of Florida has enacted laws to protect individuals’ privacy in a variety of specific areas, including financial records and medical records. Even without specific statutory protections, the Courts in Florida have found a right to privacy exists in other contexts.
The Constitution of the State of Florida expressly recognize a right to privacy under Article I, Section 12 – Florida’s Constitutional Right to Privacy:
Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental intrusion into the person’s private life except as otherwise provided herein. This section shall not be construed to limit the public’s right of access to public records and meetings as provided by law.
