Dr. Jackson Appeals Court Ruling on Sunshine Law Violation

Dr. Erwin Jackson, through his attorney C.B. Upton, filed a Notice of Appeal today with the First District Court of Appeal related to the decision rendered by a lower court addressing an alleged Florida Sunshine Law violation by the City of Tallahassee.

Upton told Tallahassee Reports that he hopes a schedule for briefing the appeals court will be agreed upon in the next day or two.

On Friday, January 18th, Judge John Cooper decided in favor of the City of Tallahassee on the issue.

Jackson alleged that the City of Tallahassee violated the Florida Sunshine Law when officials excluded 84 of the 93 applicants from the selection process for a new city commissioner without holding a public meeting.

    1. Dr. Jackson continue with your efforts! We got your back! What an idiot espousing irrelevant loud noise from his empty barrel!

  1. Dr. Jackson,

    I heard that there is a Public Record Request to the City of Tallahassee Records Department submitted about January 14, 2019 (2 weeks ago) that says something to the effect of:

    “All emails, communications including text messages, invoices, and documentation associated with Elaine Bryant from December 31, 2018 to January 1, 2010.”

    Dr. Jackson and Tallahassee Reports – why aren’t these documents available – there shouldn’t be too many of them – one would think? Isn’t it required to submit these documents or is the City of Tallahassee above those rules, too? This information might help this aspect of this case along a bit; unless of course – they are being withheld? Because?


    City Manager? City Attorney? Treasurer Clerk (in charge of Public Record requests)? Certainly not the new Mayor and new Commissioners (minus 1)?

    When will these records from this Public Record Request be in the sunshine?

    This is a lot like those text messages that didn’t exist and were lied about and then were withheld from the Tallahassee Democrat then – Shazam appeared – and then Fernandez in a bit of trouble?

    FBI – see what’s going on?
