POSTED: 11:41 am EDT July 1, 2008
MIAMI -- Travel agencies that book trips to Cuba are celebrating a small victory after a federal judge temporarily blocked a new Florida law that imposes stiff penalties and restrictions on those companies.
More than a dozen local travel agencies filed the lawsuit on Tuesday. They said the law that requires them to pose up to a $250,000 bond for bookings would put them out of business.
The next hearing is scheduled for July 11.
