Overlay Zone Challengers Go Back to Court

Posted By on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 12:00 PM

Remember, Weekly World Central contributor Dave Devine's guest commentary on the city's adoption of an overlay zone near the UA and the city's botched rejection of the signatures collected for a referendum to go to the voters? (Tim Vanderpool also did an excellent story further explaining the issue that you can read here).

A lawsuit was filed last month, and although an argument to protect the petition process and to determine the signatures were valid was rejected by the court — plaintiffs went back to court yesterday to appeal represented by Tucson Attorney Bill Risner.

Below is a video of the arguments made before the appellate court. Go to the YouTube page here to look at other relevant legal documents.
