Florida law is unconstituional in
Locke vs Shore.
The United States Court of Appeals Eleventh Circuit decided this week to uphold the State of Florida’s interior design statute.
The Court affirmed last year’s District Court decision that Florida’s licensing requirement for interior designers practicing in commercial settings is constitutional. The statute does not prevent any designer from performing the work they currently do but expands the scope of work for those who meet additional requirements. Interior designers practicing in residential settings in Florida may do so without a license.
