Legal Cases

Case NameOutcome
State v. Mignone, 411 S.W.3d 361 (Mo. App.W.D. 2013)In a case of first impression, the Western District affirmed the dismissal and in so doing recognized the trial judge's statutory authority to dismiss with prejudice where the state failed to show that the requested relief was "unwarranted."
Raisher v. Director of Revenue, 276 S.W.3d 362 (Mo.App.W.D. 2009)Judgment reversed. Adopting our argument and invoking the doctrine of deconstructive contradictions, the appellate court held the Director failed to sustain his burden to show the first result was invalid or insufficient. License reinstated.
Baldwin v. Director of Revenue, 98 S.W.3d 401 (Mo. en banc 2001)Expungement ordered! The Missouri Supreme Court agreed with our analysis that the Director was statutorily REQUIRED to expunge the license sanction from Mr. Baldwin's history and those similarly situated to the benefit of 1000s of minors.
