TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State is back in court - suing the NCAA.
The school said Friday its wants the NCAA to pay its legal fees and other costs incurred in a suit filed against the university and the athletic governing body for failing to comply with Florida's public records law.
General counsel Betty Steffen said it has been technically impossible for the school to make records in the case public because an NCAA Web site prohibits downloading or printing.
The lawsuit to force the release of documents in the university's appeal of some NCAA sanctions in an academic cheating case is scheduled for a two-day hearing beginning Aug. 5.
The Associated Press and other newspaper and broadcast companies are suing the school and NCAA.
