Zoo ban on guns still unresolved by Mo Court of Appeals

On Behalf of | Nov 18, 2018 | Uncategorized

The Misssouri Court of Appeals reversed a Judgment in favor of the St. Louis Zoo, ruling that disputed questions of fact exist precluding summary judgment on the Zoo’s ban on firearms at the Zoo.  The Zoo had obtained a permanent injunction against an Ohio guns rights activist.  The Court of Appeals ruled that disputed facts still exist on whether (1) the zoo will suffer irreparable harm and (2) whether the Zoo has an adequate remedy at law for money damages if the injunctions is not granted.  The case was remanded back to the Circuit Court to resolve those issues.  Zoological Park v. Smith (Mo. Ct. of Appeals, E.D.  Nov. 2018).
