City of Seattle joins lawsuit vs. drug-injection site opponents

October 2, 2017 / Stephen Cohen, SeattlePI

“City Attorney Pete Holmes filed a motion to join the lawsuit against I-27 on Sept. 22, calling the suit “the next logical step in turning away from relying on the criminal justice system to solve public health problems.”

In its suit, Protect Public Health argued that public health policies are to be made administratively, not through legislation, per state law. The suit seeks to have I-27 barred from coming to a vote, which was expected in February.”
