A Leon County circuit judge has rejected a constitutional challenge filed by an Oregon man who contended he was improperly kept on a public sex-offender registry in Florida.
Oregon resident Moji Momeni filed a lawsuit in 2021 alleging that his constitutional privacy and due-process rights had been violated because Florida continued to list him as a registered sex offender, though he stopped being required to register in Oregon in 2020.
Momeni, who was convicted in 2006 on sexual-abuse charges in Oregon, had to register in Florida because he lived in the state from 2012 to 2019, according to court documents.

But Circuit Judge John Cooper last week issued a four-page ruling that dismissed the case because of a statute of limitations.
Cooper wrote that Momeni would have needed to file the challenge within four years of the time that he registered in Florida in 2012.
