Circuit Judge John Cooper on Friday ordered the NCAA to release the documents - with students' names blacked out - within 48 hours of when he signs a written order. He's expected to sign it early next week.
The NCAA lawyers said they'll then ask the 1st District Court of Appeal to block the release until it can hear the case.
The documents 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 dim his chances to become major college football's winningest coach.
