Judge Orders Release Of Documents In Jim Leavitt Lawsuit

The Jim Leavitt firing lawsuit is, alas, still going on. The former South Florida head coach, fired after an alleged physical confrontation with one of his players, won a victory recently in his fight against the university.

“They’re fighting hard to keep us from the evidence,” Florin said after the hour-long hearing today in downtown Tampa. “The records we’re seeking are going to back up the fact that there were other reasons behind his termination.”

For now, all that’s actually being released are non-redacted versions of investigative files, but there are also 800 other pages that the judge is still weighing whether to release. Which means this is likely to go on for a while.
