In October 2010, my open records request to the University of Florida for veterinary records on 33 captive non-human primates was denied. UF remained in non-compliance with Florida statutes for 18 months until I won my lawsuit against them on December 30, 2011.
Within days, I received thousands of papers documenting cruel and barbaric experiments to which, funded by taxpayers, the university has been subjecting monkeys for decades. However, the documents I received were redacted to obscure the physical locations in which the animals were imprisoned and tortured. An appeal was filed to demand full disclosure of this public information.
