    A three-judge panel of federal appeals court judges last week found that Florida’s law prohibiting health care workers from asking about their patient’s firearms is legal.

    In 2011, a Miami U.S. District Court, in Wollschlaeger v. Governor of the State of Floridamore popularly as the “Docs vs. Glocks” case, blocked the Firearm Owners’ Privacy Act, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott (R) after passage by the state legislature.

    This sent the case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta, which last July handed down a 2-1 ruling reversing the lower court after finding, “the Act is a valid regulation of professional conduct that has only incidental effect on physicians’ speech.”
