State Supreme Court Rules on Scaling-Back of Light-Rail Line
In a 6-3 decision, the Washington state Supreme Court ruled against a recent legal challenge to a scaled-down transit development. The opposition group that filed the lawsuit maintained that changes made to the 21-mile light rail line project were not consistent with what voters had approved in 1996. The court disagreed, however, citing that "voters in fact had approved by reference a more detailed board resolution that did allow for changes if money ran short...even though they hadn't been provided that resolution."
