Herald drafted a suit seeking ALF records. DeSantis aide pressured law firm not to file it

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ general counsel called a representative of the Miami Herald’s law firm seeking to quash a public records lawsuit that would force the state to divulge the names of all elder-care facilities that have had a positive test for the coronavirus.

The back-door pressure — through an attorney that had no involvement in the case — paid off.
The law firm, Holland & Knight, told Sanford Bohrer, a senior partner with decades of representing the Miami Herald, to stand down and abandon the lawsuit.
The suit will still be filed, but by another law firm, said Miami Herald publisher and executive editor Aminda Marqués González.
