Kim Gardner files a response to the attorney general’s lawsuit
ST. LOUIS — A spokeswoman for the St. Louis attorney’s office announced Tuesday night that prosecutor Kim Gardner made her request in response to the attorney general’s lawsuit. Her filing denies wrongdoing and prompts the courts to dismiss the lawsuit.
Last month, a judge said Gardner has until Tuesday to respond; If not, she would face a default judgment.
Gardner faced multiple criticisms and challenges after a horrific fall resulted in 17-year-old Tennessee volleyball player Janae Edmondson losing both of her legs. The driver accused of the accident, 21-year-old Daniel Riley, was on bail in a robbery case and had multiple bail violations.
Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey filed a motion to impeach Gardner in February. Bailey said she failed in her duties.
Gardner responded to the allegations, saying she would not step down and would defend her action in the Riley case.
