A Senior Circuit Judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by former Venice City Council Member Deborah Anderson.
She had filed the suit against a Political Action Committee that produced mailers critical of her 2017 reelection run.

The suit was dismissed with prejudice against the Political Action Committee called Protect Venice, as well as Ann Stone, John Does 1 through 25 and Pat Neal, the president of Neal Communities.

The suit had four allegations: criminal and civil conspiracy, negligence and violation of Florida statutes on campaign finance and elections.
