Florida Judge Carol-Lisa Phillips has ruled in favor of Florida Governor Rick Scott who filed suit, along with the National Republican Senatorial Committee against Broward County election supervisor Brenda Snipes to force her to release public records surrounding votes in Broward County.

The suit stated that Snipes was "unwilling to disclose records revealing how many electors voted, how many ballots have been canvassed, and how many ballots remain to be canvassed."

Per the Daily Wire:
 

The judge found that Snipes, the Broward Supervisor of Elections, violated public records act and the Florida constitution, and must provide public records requested by Scott and NRSC.

 

Snipes must hand over the voting records by 7 p.m. EST on Friday.

 

On Thursday, Scott spoke to reporters, and he pointed out what was going on:

Late Tuesday night, our win was projected to be around 57,000 votes. By Wednesday morning, that lead dropped to 38,000. By Wednesday evening, it was around 30,000. This morning, it was around 21,000. Now, it is 15,000. On election night, Broward County said there were 634,000 votes cast. At 1 a.m. today, there were 695,700 ballots cast on election day. At 2:30 p.m. today, the number was up to 707,223 ballots cast on Election Day. And we just learned, that the number has increased to 712,840 ballots cast on Election Day. In Palm Beach County, there are 15,000 new votes found since election night. So, it has been over 48 hours since the polls closed and Broward and Palm Beach Counties are still finding and counting ballots – and the Supervisors – Brenda Snipes and Susan Bucher – cannot seem to say how many ballots still exist or where these ballots came from, or where they have been.”
