A Circuit Judge in Jefferson City has made a small change in the terminology of his previous order dismissing a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of Governor Bob Holden’s executive order granting many state workers the right to unionize. Judge Thomas Brown had previously issued an order dismissing the case. It’s now a judgment and order, which means the case can be appealed to a higher court. Also, the case had previously been dismissed with prejudice. It is now simply dismissed. The suit was brought against Governor Holden by a coalition including Senate Leader Peter Kinder and the Missouri Chamber of Commerce. An appeal is in the works.
