TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- December 18, 2011
The Florida Legislature is poised to reconsider bills that would compensate two men whose lives were turned upside down by governmental mistakes.
Both bills died in the frantic final hours of the last legislative session. One would benefit Eric Brody, who was paralyzed after a speeding Broward County sheriff's deputy crashed into his car.
The other is for William Dillon, who spent 27 years in prison for a Brevard County murder he didn't commit.
They are among several high-profile claims bills that will consider during the 2012 Legislative beginning Jan. 10.
Bills also have been filed for the parents of a Florida State University football player who died after a workout and a Tallahassee police informant who was killed during a botched drug sting.
