Taxpayers will have at least a brief respite from Ed Martin's serial nuisance litigation against state officials.
Last week, the Cole County Court dismissed Martin's lawsuit on behalf of anti-stem cell zealots, calling it "without merit, and ris[ing] to the level of being frivolous."
Apparently unnerved by the judicial spanking, Martin had his legal team quickly dismiss three other lawsuits by his front group, the so-called "Missouri Roundtable for Life."
- A case pending in the Supreme Court challenging the Life Sciences Trust Fund
- Two appeals on anti-cures initiative petitions pending in the Western District Court of Appeals.
Martin's 0-4 week must have his funders wondering what they are getting for their money. Taxpayers had the same question when Martin was on the government payroll.
