A group of people sentenced to life in prison as juveniles brought this class-action lawsuit against the Missouri Department of Corrections (MDOC). They claimed that MDCO's parole policies violated the Eighth Amendment and the Supreme Court's holdings in Miller v. Alabama, 567 U.S. 260 (2012), and Montgomery v. Louisiana, 577 U.S. 190 (2016). A U.S. District Judge in Jefferson City, MO agreed with the plaintiffs and order MDOC to make changes in its parole policies. After MDOC appealed, a panel of the U.S Court of Appeals for the Eight Circuit partially affirmed the District Court. The case is ongoing.
