If it's a Missouri case then it will be handled in Missouri courts under Missouri laws with Missouri lawyers and court officials.

If you do post a question here, try it for Missouri lawyers. It doesn't matter where you live, only where it happened.

I do not practice in California, but your question went unanswered for three weeks. Whether or not a lawyer determines that you have grounds for a legal claim based on the terms of the ticket and the airline’s reason(s) for their actions, she or he could advise you as to the deadlines and statutes of limitations you would need to act within to preserve your legal rights in this matter.
