TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -A judge says NCAA documents concerning academic cheating at Florida State University are public records.
Circuit Judge John Cooper on Thursday rejected the NCAA's arguments against releasing them on constitutional grounds.
Cooper will resume the hearing Friday to decide technical issues before the documents can be released to The Associated Press and other media that filed a public records lawsuit.
The documents focus on Florida State's appeal of an NCAA plan to strip coaches and athletes of wins, including football coach Bobby Bowden.
He could lose 14 victories. That would dim his chances of overtaking Penn State's Joe Paterno as major college football's winningest coach. Paterno leads by one with 383.
