Re: Request for independent investigation as to the Office of the State Attorney forthe 4

Dear Governor Scott:Florida Statutes
 provides in part that “[a] person who testifies in a judicial
 proceeding in response to a subpoena may not be dismissed from employment because of 
the nature of the person’s testimony” and that “[i]n any civil action arising out of a
violation of this sec
tion, the court may award attorney’s fees and punitive damages to the
 person unlawfully
dismissed, in addition to actual damages suffered by such person.”
(emphasis added)
