ORLANDO, Florida (AP) - Former Florida GOP chair Jim Greer is back in court for a hearing in his criminal fraud case.

The judge in the case will hear from witnesses Wednesday about what it will cost for the GOP to produce computer records Greer's attorney has requested.

Some of the most prominent Florida Republicans are named as witnesses for Greer's trial on charges that he funneled GOP money to a private company he formed with an associate.

Greer is pleading not guilty.

Greer's attorney, Damon Chase, says the emails are crucial to his client's defense but party officials are asking more than $100,000 to produce them. He said the true cost should be under $1,000. Given that Greer has little money, Chase says he wouldn't be able to afford the emails.
