The city of St. Louis will soon have a civilian oversight board. And, new police cameras in the city aim to reduce crime, but do they infringe on privacy?

Those were just two of the topics before our legal roundtable guests, our monthly show that takes a look at relevant issues pertaining to the law.

Other topics included today’s news of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Michael Brown’s family, a change in the way municipal courts in St. Louis County handle fines, and a possible lawsuit over whether a vote must take place to approve public financing for a new NFL stadium in St. Louis.

Joining “St. Louis on the Air” host Don Marsh were:

  • William "Bill" Freivogel,  Professor, Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University - Carbondale
  • Marcia McCormick, Professor of Law and Women's and Gender Studies; and Director of the Wefel Center for Employment Law at Saint Louis University
  • Mark Smith, Associate Vice Chancellor of Students at Washington University in St. Louis
