Doe v Phillips

6-17-2008 Missouri:

The issue in this case is now controlled by Doe v Keathley (2009).

Doe v Phillips
261 S.W.3d 611 (2008)

James F. Keathley (i.e., the State) appeals the judgment of the Jackson County Circuit Court enjoining the use of information obtained through an unlawful sex offender registration. On appeal, he claims the injunction was improper because the information has already been acquired, it is publicly available, and it is accessible only to law enforcement. His points are denied, and the judgment is affirmed.


Pursuant to this court's decision in Doe v. Phillips, it is proper for a circuit court to issue an injunction prohibiting the use of information acquired through an unlawful registration process. That only certain persons will have access to the information does not impact the analysis. The judgment is affirmed.
