ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis judge has ordered the city police department to turn over disciplinary records related to officers’ use of 2006 World Series tickets seized from scalpers.
Circuit Judge Robert Dierker ruled late Wednesday that the department release the documents to the American Civil Liberties Union of Missouri as part of a public records lawsuit.
The ACLU said Thursday that it had obtained some internal investigation documents the St. Louis Police Department had previously refused to provide, but the judge ruled that other documents remain off-limits while some officers continue to appeal their release.
Eight officers were suspended and demoted for turning over tickets to friends and family. Seven other officers also were disciplined, although the department did not say how or release their names.
