Parkland Surveillance Footage To Be Released After Florida Supreme Court Ruling

Aug 22, 2018

Surveillance footage from outside the Parkland school shooting should soon be released after the Florida Supreme Court declined to hear appeals from the Broward County School Board and Broward State Attorney’s office.

In rulings released Wednesday, the court said it would not entertain any further motions for rehearing.

The footage in question may show how law enforcement responded to the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 people. The Miami Herald and other media organizations including CNN and the South Florida Sun Sentinel had sued to obtain the footage.

Two lower courts agreed in succession that the footage should be released, prompting appeals from the school board and the state attorney.

It is expected to be released Wednesday afternoon.
