School Transfer Case

Bick & Kistner represented the successful plaintiffs in the case of Turner vs. City of Clayton. After a six year battle, the Missouri Supreme Court sided with the firm’s client and enforced the Missouri statute allowing students in unaccredited school districts to transfer.  The issue of school transfer continues to be a matter of state legislative interest.
