South Florida Sun Sentinel Wins Contempt Case Over Parkland Shooting Suspect.
According to the Associated Press, a judge has dismissed the Broward County School Board's request that the South Florida Sun Sentinel and two reporters be held in contempt for publishing redacted material about former student, Nikolas Cruz, who was charged with the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. The district argued that the material, regarding Cruz's education background, was redacted to protect his privacy. The paper argued the district failed to properly redact the material, allowing anyone to view it. The material showed the district hadn't given Cruz the mental health treatment he needed before the February 2018 shooting that left 17 dead.
