FJI can only accept certain types of cases, including the following:

  • Prisoners’ Rights
    This includes cases for persons currently or formerly incarcerated in a Florida prison or jail involving mistreatment while incarcerated, or involving the conditions of the facility.  We do not accept criminal or post-conviction cases (meaning anything related to a criminal case, including criminal appeals, sentencing motions, Rule 3.850 or 3.800 motions, clemency petitions, and habeas corpus petitions).
  • Housing Discrimination
    This includes cases in which a person has been denied housing because of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or familial status (having children or being pregnant).  We do not accept foreclosure cases, landlord-tenant disputes, or condominium disputes unless they involve the issues noted above.
  • Disability Discrimination
    This includes cases in which a person is unable to access or use a place of public accommodation (such as a hotel, government office, restaurant, etc.) because of a disability.  We do not accept employment cases.
  • Important Civil Rights or Civil Liberties Issues
    This includes cases which involve important issues that are likely to affect a large number of people, or may result in systemic change.
