Destin sued over public records and allegations of a Sunshine Law violation

Ah yes, the ol' Sunshine Law.

According to a new report from The Destin Log, a lawsuit has been filed against the city of Destin that alleges that officials violated the state’s Sunshine Law by failing to produce text messages between city staff and elected officials.

The company suing the city? Pointe Mezzanine LLC, a business that through an affiliate owns Holiday Isle’s Pointe Beach & Yacht Club condominiums.

They also allege that text messages between council members and city staff took place.
