Associated Press News Release
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- A new lawsuit says that Florida Gov. Rick Scott and Attorney General Pam Bondi are failing to turn over public records.
Tallahassee attorney Steven Andrews on Monday filed separate lawsuits against Scott, Bondi and the Department of State.
The lawsuit contends that the Scott administration altered calendars of one top aide, relied on private email accounts, and waited more than 18 months to hand over text messages of another aide.
The lawsuit against Bondi says her office refused to hand over notes from meetings Bondi kept on her iPad.
The governor's office and Bondi's office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Andrews has been a persistent critic of Scott. He's currently battling the state over land near the governor's mansion where his law offices are located.
