Hearing set Thursday for officers who distributed photo of Carlos Boles

(KMOV)—A hearing has been set for arguments in a petition filed by four police officers from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department in response to the photo of Carlos Boles.
The hearing will be Thursday at 11:00 a.m. at the Thomas Eagleton Federal Courthouse in St. Louis.
The officers in question seek injunctive relief from the court in response to an order issued by the department requiring the officers to surrender personal phone records pertaining to the distribution of a photo of the alleged cop-killer Carlos Boles.
Authorities say Boles shot and killed a U.S. Marshall and wounded two others when they raided his south St. Louis home for drug and assault charges in early March.
The officers believe the order violates the Constitutional rights of the officers and their families.
The officers are represented by St. Louis Police Officers Association attorneys and their families are represented by the ACLU.
