Behind the Headlines: The legacy of Judge Richard Teitelman, mayoral candidates enter the fray

Dec 2, 2016

On Friday’s St. Louis on the Air, we discussed the past and the future on “Behind the Headlines.”

Earlier this week, Missouri Supreme Court Justice Richard Teitelman died at age 69. He was considered a leading liberal voice in the Missouri legal community. We heard from two of his colleagues, SLU Law School Dean Mike Wolff and SIUC Journalism Professor Bill Freivogel, in reflection of his life and service.

We also heard from reporter Rachel Lippmann who spoke with a number of people who wanted to share memories of Teitelman. She, along with reporter Jason Rosenbaum, also filled us in on who filed to officially run to be the next mayor of St. Louis this week. The list is long and growing.
