ACC wants to remove Florida State from conference business

All eyes from the ACC are on the legal actions between the league and Florida State. In one communication to the court, the ACC requested to remove FSU from conference affairs.

If this is granted by the court, it would mean FSU could not participate in any votes regarding league business, including if they had any more discussions about expanding the league.
