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.
