It makes sense that if you sue to stop a Bicycle Master Plan and you ultimately lose after years of delaying implementation, you should have to pay court costs.
The question re businesses who keep filing suit to block completion of the Burke-Gilman Trail is: Will the Seattle city attorney’s office follow the same path?
According to the S.F. attorney’s office, ”Aggressively pursuing the fullest possible recovery of the taxpayers’ costs in litigation is a standard practice.”
Quote from David Hiller, advocacy director for Seattle’s Cascade Bicycle Club:
I hope the city protects the interests of its taxpayers in any and every way they can.
