Citrus Canker -- The Case That Will Never End.

Anyone remember citrus canker?

I can barely remember neighborhood citrus trees, but then I got a voucher at Wal-Mart and wound up purchasing old Adam Sandler movies instead of replanting all my lost tangelo trees.

Now that's what I call high quality H2O!

Anyways, after nearly a decade of wasting taxpayer money on Don Quixote-like legal hail marys, pointless trials and fruitless appeals, the Florida AG's office has found one last place to hide:
The Florida Department of Agriculture, facing current and potential jury awards of tens of millions of dollars, says state law allows it to avoid paying judgments over actions taken to protect public health, safety and welfare, unless the Legislature appropriates the money. And the agency has no plans to make that request.
Hmm, government takings of private property without compensation, taxpayer money wasted on outside legal fees, and jury verdicts undone by legal subterfuge -- where's Rick Scott when you need him?

(On second thought, strike that.)

Ridiculous. Thinking about losing my trees still makes me mad. Sounds like you did the sane thing, though, and got over it!
