Rick Scott defeats frivolous lawsuit

Here is a very short article [1] that tries to create an impression that Governor Rick Scott deceived the Florida Supreme Court. The mistake was over inaccurate figures, reported by his attorney, for a high-speed rail project between Tampa and Orlando. Near the end of the story, however, we learn that the court actually ruled in Scott's favor in, what appears to be, a frivolous lawsuit filed by two state senators. The lawsuit claimed that Scott "had overstepped his executive power by refusing to spend money appropriated by the Legislature." The actual amount of expenditures seem to have no bearing on the courts decision. If it did, the article should have at least mentioned it.
