Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced today that his office has prevailed again in its lawsuit against St. Louis County over their mask mandate. The County filed a motion to dismiss the case, a motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction, and a motion to stay discovery, all of which were denied by the Court.
The Attorney General’s Office filed a lawsuit against St. Louis County over their mask mandate earlier this year and has since obtained a Temporary Restraining Order and Preliminary Injunction.
“The people of St. Louis County scored another win as the Court denied the County’s motions to dismiss our case and dissolve the Preliminary Injunction, which remains in place,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “There is no mask mandate in St. Louis County, and I will continue to lead this important fight on behalf of the people of Missouri.”
The Attorney General’s Office will continue to pursue discovery in this case.
