December 7, 2017

On November 6, 2017, the Circuit Court of Cole County issued a writ of mandamus ordering the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to pay more than $1.1 million in state aid owed to a St. Louis County school district, plus prejudgment interest of more than $100,000.  CVDL’s Heidi Doerhoff Vollet was the lead lawyer representing the school district.  DESE is expected to acquiesce in the judgment and not appeal.  To learn more about our firm’s extensive experience in governmental issues, please click here.
