Court of Appeals affirms dismissal of election challenge

September 19, 2018

On September 18, 2018, just hours after oral argument, the Court of Appeals affirmed the circuit court’s dismissal of a lawsuit seeking to prevent voters from making a decision in November on Amendment 2, relating to medical marijuana. CVDL represented the campaign committee, New Approach, in the circuit court and on appeal. If adopted by the voters in November, Amendment 2 would amend the Missouri constitution to allow patients with debilitating medical conditions to use medical marijuana under the supervision of their doctors.
