On the potential "Coyotes to Seattle" topic (from the Metro Seattle Arena thread)...

Quote:
Friday, a King County judge will hear arguments in a lawsuit brought by local Longshore workers arguing that the environmental review should have been done before a deal was reached, when the outlines of the proposal to build the sports venue were known.

Both sides of the dispute have agreed to the underlying facts and asked the judge to rule solely on whether the city and county violated the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). The judge, Douglass North, could make a ruling from the bench Friday after the lawyers present their oral arguments starting at 1:30 p.m.
Further...

Quote:
Even if the King County Judge North rejects the Longshore workers lawsuit, the arena plan faces a second legal challenge. That suit argues that the deal with Hansen violates Seattle Initiative 91, which requires the city to make a profit on any public financing of a sports facility.

A trial date in that case is currently set for May 2014.

Must have been asleep at the wheel. This is the first I'm hearing of an actual date for that I91 suit.
