Ocello v. Koster[1]

Opinion handed down November 15, 2011
Link to Mo. Sup. Ct. Opinion

A group of adult oriented businesses and Missouri residents challenged recent additions to the Missouri statutes that restrict certain kinds of sexually oriented businesses. The Supreme Court of Missouri, taking the appeal directly from a judgment on the pleadings for defendants at the trial court level, upheld the regulations as reasonable, content-neutral time, place, and manner restrictions that were consistent with U.S. Supreme Court precedent.
