A. Adjudications by administrative bodies.

Proceedings before an agency in which legal rights, duties or privileges of specific parties are required by law to be determined after hearing are called "contested cases" under the Missouri Administrative Procedure Act, Mo.Rev.Stat. §  536.010(2). Hearings and evidence in contested cases are generally open to the public unless one of the enumerated exceptions in the Sunshine Law apply. The Sunshine Law does not apply to any disciplinary proceedings involving professional licenses brought before the Administrative Hearing Commission or otherwise conducted by any professional licensing agency.
