Florida Attorney General Speaks Out About Public Records and NCAA

By  | 

Florida's Attorney General wants to join the fight over the
NCAA documents released to FSU.

As we reported Tuesday, Attorney General Bill McCollum filed a motion Tuesday that would allow the office to file an amicus brief with the circuit court.

The Attorney General's office says Florida State and the NCAA are part of a lawsuit against a number of news organizations over the release of public documents.

The AG wants to help the court in regards to the protection of the Public Records Act.

Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum says, "You've got an out-of-state big corporation, if you want to call it that that is saying something like no, we're not gonna follow Florida law. We can't let 'em get away with that."

The Attorney General says since the documents were given to Florida State, they are subject to Public Records law.

The final circuit court hearing on the dispute will be August 5th and 6th.
