ST. LOUIS–(KMOX)–Four years ago John Chasnoff filed a lawsuit to seek the release of internal police documents relating to the 2006 World Series ticket scandal. Today, the longtime police critic is still waiting.
Chansoff, who was with the Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression, says the case is still important because there are unanswered questions.
“There had been some rumors at the time that some higher-ups in the department had ended up with these tickets,” Chasnoff said, “I don’t know if that’s true or not true. But this investigation will let us know whether there were more people involved than the eight officer who got originally disciplined.”
After earlier calling for the release of the documents, Judge Phillip Heagney has now agreed to a 30 day stay to allow time for a group of police officers to pursue their legal options to keep the documents closed.
From the officer’s standpoint, the case is about protecting the privacy of what they are compelled to tell internal investigators in this case or any other.
