On January 31, 2017, JAMES J. WILSON and CHARLES A. LANE filed a PETITION FOR DECLARATORY JUDGMENT, QUO WARRANTO, AND INJUNCTIVE RELIEF. Case Number 1722-CC00338. See case petition here.

The named Defendants on the lawsuit are as follows: The City of St. Louis; the State of Missouri; Carl Phillips, in his official capacity as Director of Parking Operations of the City of St. Louis Treasurer’s Office; Darlene Green, in her official capacity of Comptroller of the City of St. Louis; Stephen J. Runde, P. E., in his official capacity as Director of the City of St. Louis Department of Streets; Freeman M. Bosley, Sr., in his official capacity as Chair of the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen’s Traffic Committee; and Tishaura O. Jones, in her official capacities as Treasurer of the City of St. Louis and the City of St. Louis Parking Supervisor. Since the filing, the Board of Aldermen Traffic Committee is now being Chaired by Alderman Jeffrey L. Boyd and the Director for the Department of Streets is Jamie Wilson.

The Petition for Declaratory Judgment, Quo Warranto and Injunctive Relief challenges the constitutionality of the Parking Commission under the Missouri Constitution Art VI, § 22. On July 7, 2017, Alderman Boyd filed a Motion to Intervene in this action and to serve as a Plaintiff in this lawsuit. On August 18, 2017, the Court granted Alderman’s Boyd’s Motion to Intervene. Since the order, and due to the fact that Alderman Boyd is also a member of the Parking Commission, the Parking Commission has suspended all meetings in order to allow the legal process to run its course. Meanwhile, parking operations will continue according to current policies until legal clarity is achieved. Once the court has rendered a decision or a legal resolution occurs, the Parking Commission will comply with the law accordingly.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
