Missouri Supreme Court: Search warrant for Gardner office OK

St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner

ST. LOUIS – The Missouri Supreme Court has denied a request from the St. Louis Circuit Attorney’s Office to block a grand jury search warrant that is part of a perjury investigation of William Tisaby , hired last year to investigate former Gov. Eric Greitens.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner sought the state Supreme Court’s ruling on whether a circuit judge has the authority to issue a search warrant for electronic data. The court ruled Tuesday.

The search warrant seeks six months of emails and other electronic data. Gardner has called it burdensome and unconstitutionally broad.

Greitens was charged with invasion of privacy in February 2018, alleging he took a semi-nude photo of a woman during a 2015 extramarital affair, without consent.

Charges were eventually dropped , but Greitens resigned in June.
