Missouri Supreme Court Assigns State Judge to Take Over Ferguson Cases Amid DOJ Report Revealing Abuses

Municipal Judge Ronald J. Brockmeyer in Ferguson, Missouri, resigned Monday after the state's Supreme Court announced that it would take the "extraordinary action" of reassigning all cases to the circuit court following the Department of Justice's report last week that cited the judge's abusive practices. As of Monday, all municipal cases have been assigned to a state appeals court judge.
