A St. Louis circuit judge on Thursday heard arguments for and against opening files from the city Police Department's internal investigation into officers' misuse of 2006 World Series tickets seized from scalpers.More here.
Activist John Chasnoff filed a Sunshine Law suit in 2007 to get access to the investigative files; the Police Department has argued that the files should remain closed.
Earlier this month, Judge Philip Heagney ordered the department to provide Chasnoff with the initial complaint that sparked the investigation, saying it was clearly a public record under Missouri laws. After Thursday's hearing, Heagney said he did not know when he would issue a ruling on the investigative files. Both sides said they would appeal any decision against them.
