Court Upholds Summary for St. Louis Police Measure

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri appellate court has upheld the proposed ballot summary for an initiative that would end state control of the St. Louis Police Department.

The Missouri Court of Appeals’ Western District ruled Tuesday that the summary is fair and sufficient. The American Civil Liberties Union of Eastern Missouri had filed a lawsuit challenging the summary.

The ballot measure calls for St. Louis to oversee the city’s police department instead of a state commission. Election officials reported earlier this month that supporters had submitted enough valid signatures for the measure to appear on the November statewide ballot.
