Judge Stays EDC Public Records Production Order


Brevard Clerk of Court Scott Ellis
TITUSVILLE, Florida -- Brevard County Circuit Court Judge John 'Dean' Moxley, Jr. has issued a stay of his order which had required that the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space Coast (EDC)  produce all records requested by Scott Ellis, in his official capacity as Brevard County Clerk of the Circuit Court, within thirty days.


Moxley stayed his order pending the outcome of the EDC's appeal to the 5th District Court of Appeal in Daytona Beach, Florida.

 

EDC CEO Lynda Weatherman
Ellis, through his attorneys, did not object to the stay.  Ellis filed a cross-appeal which seeks attorneys fees from the EDC.

  1. Judge Moxley's stay of the order that the EDC produce all records within 30 days of the order was expected.

    What will be interesting is how the EDC, through its attorneys', will keep public records from the citizens of Brevard County after the appeal is lost.

    1. Probably getting some kind of benefit from the EDC.

  3. One has to wonder just what it is the EDC is trying so hard to keep from the Public eye.

    If it looks illegal, it probably is illegal.

  4. Go to the source yourself. Meet with the EDC, or attend an EDC event. They host events that are open to the public.

      No way buddy, they are crooked and are now scrambling to hide their goings on. There is no other reason for them to be trying so hard to avoid full disclosure. They have something to hide!

  5. If they are so open, why won't they open their books for audit? Sure looks like they are concealing something. Probably a crooked county commissioner or someone in there needing protection from scrutiny.

    Contrary to what you hear, they are audited every year, but if you keep saying otherwise possibly it will change.
