Case had been filed in Cole County Circuit Court. The lawsuit argued that the ballot summary had been “inadequate and unjust.” Also, the suit noted that the fee estimate would not address all feasible expenses. 
The plaintiff ended up being John Prentzler, manager of car operations at AutoStart United States Of America. Prentzler had been represented by Kansas City lawyer Todd Graves and Jefferson City lawyer Chuck Hatfield. 
Particularly, the lawsuit highlighted that the lengthier note that is fiscal into the measure outlined a gloomier financial effect than that which was outlined into the ballot language. State quotes stated that the measure might have cost their state between $2.5 – $3.5 million, but, plaintiffs pointed to a study with a University of Missouri economics teacher and previous manager for the Show-Me Institute that argued that the effect might have been more or less $57 million when you look at the very first 12 months had the measure been authorized.
