For briefs of cases heard in the Florida Supreme Court, see the links available on the Legal Research: Florida guide. For documents from lower courts, you'll probably need to contact the court directly.
For example, the 5th District Court of Appeals provides online access to opinions back to May 2001 and online archived video of oral arguments back to September 2005. But as of September 2012 the pleadings, briefs, orders and other documents in the court file are not available online.
You can review the list of court documents in the Florida District Courts of Appeal On-Line Dockets, with some dockets available back to 1985, but please note that this just provides a list of documents, not the full text of the actual documents.
See the Legal Research: Florida guide for links to the Florida courts.
