Florida Judge Gives NCAA More Time to Release Records

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — A judge has given the NCAA until 2 p.m. Wednesday to release its original documents on academic cheating at Florida State.

Friday’s decision by Circuit Judge John Cooper gives the athletics

organization more time to seek an order from the Florida Supreme Court

to block the release.

The Associated Press

and other media had sought immediate release following an appellate

decision confirming the records are public.

Florida State already has released copies made from “screen shots” of

the documents posted on a secure, read-only Web site, but the media

organizations still are seeking originals from the NCAA.
