JEFFERSON CITY, MO - A lawsuit over the Taum Sauk reservoir collapse will be heard where the incident occured.
Attorney General Jay Nixon says a judge transferred the case from St. Louis to Reynolds County. Both Nixon and reservoir owner Ameren UE had agreed to the change.
The mountain-top reservoir broke in December 2005, unleashing more than one billion gallons of water on Johnson Shut-Ins State Park and seriously injuring the park superintendent's family.
Nixon is suing Ameren for damages.
Governor Blunt's administration also has been trying to negotiate a settlement with Ameren.
