But the records are not being released yet. At a hearing Thursday, Circuit Judge John Cooper still has to consider the NCAA's argument that opening the records would violate constitutional rights, including freedom of association.
The Associated Press and other media say the documents should be made public.
They focus on Florida State's appeal of an NCAA plan to strip coaches and athletes of wins in 10 sports.
That includes football coach Bobby Bowden, who stands to lose 14 victories and hamper his chances of overtaking Penn State's Joe Paterno for the title of major college football's winningest coach. Paterno leads by one with 383.
