Media Contact

Members of the media:

As the Supreme Court of Missouri's communications counsel, one of my duties is serving as media liaison for the Missouri Judicial branch. An important part of my job is to answer your questions, for example, about the Judiciary, legal procedure or the meaning of legal terms, or to assist with an issue relating to the use of cameras in the courtroom. I am an attorney, but because I work for the Judiciary, I cannot offer opinion, interpretations or legal advice. Usually, however, I can provide background information and a contact with the appropriate person to facilitate your story.

I also maintain an electronic mail group that receives notices and summaries of cases scheduled for argument and opinions the Court issues. I also send messages occasionally about other topics about which I think you might be interested. If you would like to be included in the e-mail group, please let me know.

Various courts have their own media contacts:

If you have questions about any other court in Missouri or have ideas to improve the Missouri courts' communication with you, or ease your task in some way, please let me know.

Feel free to contact me for any assistance we might offer.

Very truly yours,

Beth S. Riggert
