GLASGOW, Mo. —¬†An attorney for the Glasgow School District says he is going to ask a judge to make Howard County pay for the schools legal fees.

Kenneth Suttner

Attorney Thomas Mickes has been representing Glasgow School District in a suit to obtain records from a Coroner’s Inquest into the suicide of 17-year-old Kenneth Suttner, who died in December of 2016.

A jury inquiry in early 2017 found bullying at Glasgow Schools and at the Dairy Queen where Suttner worked was responsible for the teenager’s death. A former manager at the restaurant, 22-year-old Harley Branham, is charged in his death.

On Tuesday, the Western District Court of Appeals denied a motion by special prosecutor April Wilson, to keep some of those records closed. Wilson had argued that those records should not be made public due to an ongoing police investigation.

Another hearing is scheduled for February 7 before Judge Scott Hayes in Howard County.
