Gotta love those lawsuits

Joe Adams, Florida’s numero uno open-records guru, shares the oft-told advice that there’s no telling what you can unearth by poking around in the local courthouse’s civil lawsuit files. For instance:

The details surfaced as part of Briscoe?s lawsuit against the school district and a former school superintendent.

See, now that’s how I want my school district spending my tax dollars.
