Sierra Club files suit against University of Florida over public records

Sierra Club files suit against University of Florida over public records

The Sierra Club has filed suit against the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (aka IFAS) over what it says are violations of public records laws. The lawsuit, which was filed yesterday, comes as a result of “years of refusal by IFAS to respond to legitimate questions asked by the Sierra Club and local governments with regard to contradictory messaging about urban fertilizer management.” “The records sought will provide the names of the external and internal reviewers, and their reviews, of several IFAS papers that have been created for and used by the opponents of urban fertilizer regulation, and details regarding the decision-making process that led a handful of IFAS administrators to denounce and lobby against the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s and IFAS’ own Florida-friendly urban fertilizer recommendations,” according to a press release. In March 2009, IFAS released a publication titled “Unintended Consequences Associated with Certain Urban Fertilizer Ordinances” that promoted less protective standards than those found in the earlier “Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Handbook,” a guide published by IFAS and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection
