Thousands of people will get refunds for warrant recall fees they paid to St. Louis City Municipal Court.
Since 2009, St. Louis City Municipal Court has charged defendants a fee to lift their warrants and give them a new court date. As the result of a class action lawsuit, the City must refund a total of $750,000 to 21,000 defendants who paid these warrant cancellation fees.
Warrant recall fees ranged from $35 to $45, depending on how old the warrant was.
As a result of the lawsuit, St. Louis City Municipal Court will no longer be allowed to charge warrant recall fees.
