A U.S. lawyer described as disappointing the rejection by the Supreme Court of his country the demand against a Florida legislation that prohibits to use public and private funds for academic travels to Cuba.

  "This is a wrong law that sends a distorted message for the academic freedom in Florida (...). This is a sad moment for the academic activity," stated jurist Randall C. Marshall, legal representative from the American Civil Liberties Union.

In his opinion, the regulation will restrict the use of public capital and contributions that traditionally awards foundations and private organizations for the work of the universities of that state, home of the main groups that plan and execute terrorist actions against Cuba.

The highest legal body, comprised of mostly conservative judges, declined yesterday the appeal without providing arguments and still maintains the restriction imposed by Florida in 2006.
