  • June 4, 2019

[Fort Lauderdale, FL, June 4, 2019] Contrary to the press release by the Broward Sheriff's Office, the Broward County Clerk of Courts properly distributed official documentation to the required parties under Florida's statutes, administrative rules, or other applicable law. As the official record keeper of court proceedings, the clerk performs ministerial and non-discretionary duties only. In order to release a prisoner from confinement, a directive from the judiciary is required. Eric Alexander Vail, Jr.'s case docket reveals that no judicial directives were filed to release Mr. Vail in the first degree murder case as explained in the Full Press Release.
