If the writ was quashed, that just indicates he will not be physically brought to court. It sounds like he will be appearing by Polycom (video court) instead. If he does not have an attorney yet, he needs to either retain one or have one appointed to represent him on his pending case. An attorney can make sure that he has properly filed his disposition of detainer request which can help him with his case.

I have changed the practice area to criminal defense. This should get your question in front of lawyers with the correct background. What I can tell you is that the Missouri Supreme Court has issued an order stopping all in person hearings and trials. That is likely why he isn’t being transported for the hearing. I know that the courts are trying to do as much as they can through video and audio conferencing due to the coronavirus so that is likely what is happening.
