F.S. 617.1604
617.1604 Court-ordered inspection.
(1) If a corporation does not, within a reasonable time, allow a member to inspect and copy any record, and the member complies with any prerequisites to inspection and copying imposed by this section, the member may apply to the circuit court in the county where the corporation’s principal office, or, if none in this state, its registered office, is located for an order to permit inspection and copying of the records demanded. The court shall dispose of an application under this subsection on an expedited summary basis.
(2) If the court orders inspection or copying of the records demanded, it shall also order the corporation and the custodian of the particular records demanded to pay the member’s costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, reasonably incurred to obtain the order and enforce its rights under this section unless the corporation, or the officer, director, or agent, as the case may be, provides that it or he or she refused inspection in good faith because it or he or she had a reasonable basis for doubt about the right of the member to inspect or copy the records demanded.
(3) If the court orders inspection or copying of the records demanded, it may impose reasonable restrictions on the use or distribution of the records by the demanding member.
