On Oct 4 2013 the ACLU of Eastern Missouri filed a lawsuit against the Missouri Department of Corrections. The lawsuit alleges that the Department failed to comply with Missouri's Open Meetings and Records law (often known as 'the Sunshine law') by failing to comply with a request for information about how the Department obtains propofol. This drug is an anesthetic, used widely in surgeries across the world. See the ACLU press release regarding the lawsuit here.
