Florida Supreme Court Briefs and Opinions; And Oral Arguments When Available
The Florida S.Ct. Records & Briefs Project is a cooperative project funded by all of the academic law libraries in Florida. The goal of the Project is to provide a full record of all Florida Supreme Court Records & Briefs dating from 1846.
This file contains opinions issued in Florida Supreme Court cases decided since August 1984 and the briefs filed in those cases. Briefs for cases decided without an opinion are not included. In the future we plan to include older cases on this Web site. For more information about this project, or to request briefs for older cases, click here.
The Florida Supreme Court Records and Briefs are public records under Florida Law. Access to the records of the judicial branch is governed by Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.420, entitled "Public Access to Judicial Records." In the absence of an exemption under FRJA 2.420, judicial records are subject to disclosure. Questions should be directed to the Florida Supreme Court which is responsible for the records that it releases to the public.
