The City Attorney’s Office (CAO) on Wednesday asked King County Superior Court to dismiss the appeal of the ballot title prepared for the City’s transportation funding measure on the November election because it was not filed in the time allotted by state law and because CAO’s prepared ballot title meets the requirements of state law.

Judge John H. Chun will hear arguments at 10 a.m. Thursday in his courtroom, W921.

The $930 million Move Seattle levy was proposed by Mayor Ed Murray. In June the Council approved an ordinance placing the measure on the Nov. 3, 2015 ballot.
