BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Rebekah Jones, the data scientist fired from her position at the Florida Department of Health last year, has moved to dismiss her lawsuit against the Florida Department of Law Enforcement over an armed raid on her Tallahassee townhome in December.

Jones was arrested after the raid and is facing a criminal charge of violating Florida's computer crime laws. The state alleges she used an official emergency messaging system to send a mass text calling on civil servants to speak out against how Florida was managing its response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"You know this is wrong," the text said, in part. "You don't have to be part of this. Be a hero. Speak out before it's too late."
