This action was brought by parties seeking such reports created during a class action lawsuit filed by Florida prisoners alleging unconstitutional conditions and medical care. The Court found the Florida legislature specifically made these types of records exempt. See: §766.101 (S), (7) (C).
As such, the trial court’s denial of the petition for word of mandamus and for declaratory judgment was properly denied. See: Tampa Television, Inc., v. Dugger, 559 So. 2d 397 (Fla 1st DCA 1989).
