An Update on the City’s Motion for Preliminary Injunction
This morning the King County Superior Court held a hearing on the City’s motion for a preliminary injunction and Sound Transit’s motion for partial summary judgment. In a ruling during the hearing, the Court denied the City’s motion, which sought to enjoin construction of a curb cut on the north side of North Mercer Way for bus layovers. The Court substantially granted Sound Transit’s motion for summary judgment as well. Sound Transit’s motion pertained to many, but not all issues in dispute between the parties.
The City respectfully disagrees with the Court’s decision and is evaluating all of its options. The City expects to post the Court’s written orders to the City’s Let’s Talk page when those orders are entered by the Court.
UPDATE | 12/22/2021: The Court issued an order granting Sound Transit's motion for summary judgement, denying the City's motion for preliminary injunction.
