On May 22 I filed an action in Florida Circuit Court in Broward County  to overturn extensive redactions made by the City of Fort Lauderdale in my public records requests for files on Alex Pussieldi.

The case now has been assigned to a panel of judges headed by Judge John B. Bowman. The city was served two days ago.

We’re requesting an immediate hearing to address our plea for an in camera (judge’s chambers) inspection of the unredacted version of the records at issue so that the court can determine whether the city has unlawfully redacted non-exempt information.

Florida law provides for an “immediate hearing,” which is defined as the court giving “the case priority over other pending cases.”
