Recently in Gladstone, Clay County officials were served with a lawsuit initiated on behalf of six sex offenders. The lawsuit centers around a new ordinance in the works that forces convicted sex offenders to stay home on Halloween with their lights off and a sign. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit proclaiming a violation of their civil rights. Consequently, the Clay County Sheriffs Department decided not to check on offenders until the ordinance has passed.
If you have a lawsuit to file in Gladstone then you will be heading to the Clay County's 7th Judicial District Circuit Court. Circuit Courts in Missouri are exclusively responsible for hearing domestic relations, criminal, juvenile, civil and small claims cases that do not exceed $3,000. Traffic violations may also earn you a summons to the court if you’ve elected to fight your ticket.
