GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - We have a TV20 news update on a lawsuit filed by professors claiming their first amendment rights were violated by the University of Florida.

On Friday, U.S District Judge Mark Walker heard arguments on a motion to block UF’s conflict of interest policy.

It’s the policy that was used to deny professors’ requests to testify in lawsuits against the state of Florida.

Arguments will resume next Friday.
