missouri supreme court

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is urging the State Supreme Court to set execution dates for 19 death sentences. Koster says no legal barrier is barring the high court from moving forward with the executions. 

Koster says 10 cases of capital punishment have already been awaiting execution dates for over 3 years. He gave the court an additional 9 names today and says there is no legal ground for delaying punishment.

The Missouri Supreme Court has been asked to appoint a new judge to hear a lawsuit challenging a state Medicaid contract.

A federal judge ruled Wednesday that Missouri’s law banning flag desecration is unconstitutional.

It appears the Missouri Supreme Court might not rule on legal challenges to congressional and state House districts before the candidate filing period ends next week.
