When the Supreme Court of Missouri issues a decision in the form of a full opinion, it is published to the Internet. All opinions are listed online in reverse chronological order. The information published online includes the case number, case name, attorneys for the parties, the court or commission from which the case was appealed, the name of the judge who authored the opinion, the vote (which includes both the disposition, or result, of the appeal and a listing of how the judges voted on the case), a summary of the opinion provided for the convenience of the reader, and the full text of the opinion. If there is a separate opinion, it is listed after the majority opinion. Click here to see the Supreme Court's opinions.
The Supreme Court typically has two Tuesdays each month on which it might issue opinions. All opinions are handed down, or issued, at 1 p.m. To see a schedule of the dates on which the Court might issue opinions, click here: Supreme Court Decision Dates.
