Bernie Rhodes Represents Media Outlets in Sunshine Law Case


Lathrop Gage partner Bernard Rhodes represented multiple news organizations including The Kansas City Star, The St. Louis Post Dispatch, The Springfield News Leader, The Guardian, and the Associated Press in an ongoing case involving the Missouri Department of Corrections’ (DOC) violation of the Sunshine Law by not revealing the suppliers of lethal injection drugs. Cole County Circuit Judge Jon E. Beetem recently ruled that Sunshine Law does not protect the pharmacists who supply the lethal execution drugs and ordered the DOC to produce the records.
