The Supreme Court of Missouri reserves certain dates each year on which to consider cases, typically by hearing oral arguments. When the Court schedules a case to be considered, it puts the case on a "docket," or a listing, of cases for a particular month. Once each month's docket is established, a link to those cases will be provided here. The monthly dockets listed below include cases that are to be "submitted on briefs" without oral argument as well as those scheduled for oral argument. Please check the docket pages for each month to see when arguments are scheduled to begin.
The daily docket pages, listed under the monthly dockets, show only those cases that are scheduled for oral argument. The daily dockets also provide PDF versions of any briefs filed in the Supreme Court for a particular case and summaries of those briefs. Briefs are posted as they become available. Summaries, which are provided for the interest and convenience of the public only and which do not reflect any opinion of the Court as to the merits of the case, generally are posted within a week before the argument date.
The Supreme Court offers live audio streaming of its oral arguments. The live audio link will work only during oral arguments. If you are experiencing difficulty in accessing the arguments, please call the Help Desk at (888) 541-4894. Archives of each day's arguments from September 2007 through the present will be available on that day's "cases scheduled" page, below.
