ACC Attempts to Protect Media Contracts Amid Legal Battle for Its Survival

May 31, 2024

On Wednesday, the ACC responded to a lawsuit filed last month by Florida’s attorney general. ESPN, as well as the other Power 4 conferences, voiced their support of the ACC’s position in court documents.

The filings are the latest in an ongoing legal battle over whether FSU and Clemson can depart the conference.

The lawsuit, brought by Florida state AG Ashley Moody in April, alleges that the ACC violated Florida public records laws by refusing to produce documents related to the conference’s media deal. The documents are at the center of FSU’s lawsuit against the ACC arguing that the contracts binding the school to the conference for the next decade—lest FSU pay $500 million in exit fees—are unenforceable.
