The Police Retirement System of St. Louis, Missouri

On April 19, 2021, a lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of the City of St. Louis, Charles Lane and Johnny McCrary v. Police Retirement System of St. Louis, City of St. Louis, and State of Missouri.  The lawsuit alleges that certain benefits conferred by the State upon members of the Police Retirement System of St. Louis which obligates the City of St. Louis to pay for, violates the “Hancock Amendment,” a part of the Missouri Constitution, as creating an “unfunded mandate.”  A PDF of the lawsuit Petition can be found by clicking this link.
