More documents in Monroe camera enforcement lawsuit

The date to settle the legal battle between the city of Monroe and opponents of traffic enforcement cameras is only a week away, and both sides are preparing their best arguments.

We already reported the response Seeds Of Liberty's lawyer, Richard Stephens, filed in Snohomish County Superior Court. You can read it here.

The Herald received more documents by Mukilteo activist Tim Eyman, who helped Seeds of Liberty organize the signature campaign for Monroe Initiative No. 1. On Wednesday he submitted signatures for similar initiative in Redmond.*

The latest Monroe documents are linked in the box at right.

This would not be Stephens' first battle concerning initiatives of this kind. He also represented similar groups in lawsuits against Longview and Mukilteo.

In both cases, the court decided the public must be allowed to vote on the issue.

Monroe, meanwhile, hopes the judge makes a decision like one made in Wenatchee. A Chelan County judge ruled that a vote on the cameras would be invalid.

* Correction, Sept. 14, 2011: This article originally misstated Eyman's actions in Redmond on Wednesday.
