TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -The dispute between the NCAA and Florida State University is drawing scrutiny from elected officials.
The NCAA cannot secretly respond to a Florida State appeal - which it's attempting to do in violation of the state's open government laws, the attorney general's office said Thursday.
Alexis Lambert, the sunshine and public records lawyer for Attorney General Bill McCollum, said Florida statutes are clear that a third party - the NCAA in this case - that generates a document cannot designate it to be private.
Florida State is appealing sanctions resulting from an academic cheating scandal that would strip Bobby Bowden of up to 14 coaching victories. It has until July 1 to respond to the NCAA's secret letter.
