Florida and Cuba: Brazil’s Odebrecht sues Florida over Cuba, Syria law

 The U.S. subsidiary of Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht has filed a lawsuit challenging a recently signed Florida law barring local governments from hiring companies that do business in Cuba or Syria.

The lawsuit, filed on Monday in Miami federal court, claims the measure is “unconstitutional and unenforceable” and argues that the federal government, not states, has the authority to enact laws involving foreign affairs.
