Lawsuits filed over Pulse 911 calls

Media outlets suing for release of calls; city of Orlando also files lawsuit

ORLANDO, Fla. – Dueling lawsuits have been filed over whether the public will get to hear the 911 calls made by the gunman from inside the Pulse Nightclub on June 12. 

Several media outlets are suing for the release of the calls, along with more than 600 other calls made to Orlando police and firefighters in the minutes after the shooting. 

The city of Orlando has also filed a lawsuit asking a judge to decide if the records must be made public, since the FBI told officials not to release the calls. 

Both sides are looking for a quick hearing on the lawsuits. It's unclear when that may happen.
