Chris Koster’s egg lawsuit busts its budget

When he embarked on his strange and opportunistic quest to challenge a California law regarding eggs and hens, Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster said he thought the case would cost the state less than $10,000. That was optimistic. Records from the attorney general’s office show that the state has paid $83,711 for outside legal services, expert testimony and other expenses.

Tragic death of Teresa Kellough in midtown is compounded by silence

It’s been 17 days since a co-worker went to check in on Teresa Kellough and found her shot to death in her midtown Kansas City home. Seventeen days with no arrests and no answers. Two weeks and three days and nothing to shed light for family and friends about why a 49-year-old woman who was a devoted single mom and professional pet groomer would end up a homicide victim.

Chris Koster’s foolish egg lawsuit gets scrambled

A federal judge has slapped down Koster’s bizarre lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of a 2010 California law that says out-of-state producers who want to sell eggs in California must treat their hens humanely. Good for her. As a Missouri resident, I prefer that my state’s attorney general not be leading the charge for inhumane treatment of farm animals.
