New Ruling on FSU/NCAA Documents

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.

The decision Friday by Circuit Judge John Cooper gives the
athletics organization more time to seek an order from the Florida
Supreme Court to block public disclosure.

The Associated Press and other media had sought immediate
release because an appellate court on Oct. 13 finalized a ruling
affirming an earlier decision by Cooper that the documents are
public records.

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.
