With several lawsuits on hold amid mediation, a Leon County circuit judge wants an update on the status of negotiations in the state’s attempt to recoup millions of dollars paid to former leaders of the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence.

Attorney General Ashley Moody and the Department of Children and Families in March 2020 began litigation against the nonprofit coalition, its former board of directors and former CEO Tiffany Carr after reports that Carr received compensation of at least $7.5 million over a three-year period. Carr’s compensation included more than $3.7 million in paid time off, according to court documents.
