Litigation Division

The Litigation Division defends the state and its agencies and employees against thousands of lawsuits each year and handles some of the most complex issues facing the state. These cases may involve any agency of state government and may include damage claims, construction and contract cases, complicated class-action lawsuits, personnel issues, constitutional challenges or other types of civil litigation.

Litigation attorneys defend constitutional challenges to state laws and ballot issues; sue to recover money fraudulently taken from the state; defend lawsuits filed by state prisoners; defend the state in employment and tort cases; and advance the state's interest in complex cases such as the historic national tobacco settlement and the milestone cases in which the U.S. Supreme Court upheld Missouri's campaign finance laws.
