TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida is getting sued again over its contentious push to remove potentially ineligible voters from the rolls.

Several groups that work with immigrants and Puerto Ricans are filing a lawsuit Tuesday in a Miami federal court. They contend the purge violates federal law because it is within 90 days of an election and because the effort largely affects Hispanics.

This is now the fourth lawsuit surrounding the move initiated by Gov. Rick Scott.

The U.S. Department of Justice has already filed a lawsuit to block the purge, while the Scott administration has sued the federal government to gain access to a federal immigration database in order to check the citizenship status of voters.
