A bankruptcy filing this week means a St. Charles County woman who successfully sued the producers of "Girls Gone Wild" videos may never see her court ordered award.

GGW Brands filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Los Angeles Wednesday. The petition listed more than $16 million in disputed claims, including the nearly $6 million a judge awarded to Tamara Favazza in 2010.

Favazza had sued GGW subsidiaries Mantra Films and MRA Holding after she appeared in a "Girls Gone Wild" video. Favazza claimed that in 2004 someone working for the production company had lifted her tank top in front of the camera, and that she hadn't agreed to expose herself for the video. The incident happened at a downtown St. Louis bar.

Favazza’s lawyers are still battling to collect the judgement.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have approved legislation that would require simplified report cards for schools.

The report cards would include scores on state performance measures with a translation into a letter grade for the individual standards and their components. The report cards would apply to public schools and charter schools with classes beyond second grade. They would be available starting December 2014.

Principals could provide up to 250 words of context or background on the scores. Schools that receive an overall score of less than 70 percent would need to submit a plan to the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education explaining what will be done to improve.

The House passed the measure 128-23 on Thursday. It now goes to the Senate.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A substitute teacher at a St. Louis elementary school was removed from the classroom after bringing a Taser to class.

Christina Garland, a principal at Kehrs Mill Elementary, sent a letter explaining the situation to parents.

The letter did not say how the Taser was discovered Wednesday in a fifth-grade classroom. But Garland said the teacher was immediately removed and another substitute was brought in.

The Rockwood School District is investigating.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A special panel created by Missouri Secretary of State Jason Kander is recommending that the state allow early voting and expand absentee voting by mail.

The bipartisan commission released its recommendations Thursday for overhauling Missouri's voting laws.

Missouri now allows people to vote by mail only if they meet certain conditions, such as a disability or absence from their district on election day. The commission says voters should be allowed to mail their ballots without such restrictions.

It also recommends requiring all local election authorities to establish one location where voters can cast ballots in-person beginning six weeks before election day. For presidential elections, highly-populated areas would be required to establish an additional polling place for early voting.

The 11-member commission is made up of local election authorities, attorneys and former lawmakers.
