2 more Missouri cities dropped from traffic fines lawsuit

St. Louis, MO ( KTRS ) Only one municipality remains a defendant in a lawsuit filed by the attorney general over a law capping the percentage of revenue from traffic fines.

Attorney General Chris Koster’s office announced Thursday that Moline Acres and Normandy are being dropped from the St. Louis County Circuit Court lawsuit after filing new paperwork.

At issue is a law that bars municipalities from getting more than 30 percent of their annual revenue from traffic fines and related court costs. Cities must submit paperwork to show they are in compliance.

With the dismissal of the two cities, the village of Hillsdale is the last remaining defendant. Koster’s lawsuit alleges that its paperwork is missing crucial information.

Several other cities were dismissed from the lawsuit previously. Koster vows to continue pushing for compliance.
