    In the wake of a judge allowing a recall petition against Seattle Councilmember Kshama Sawant to move into the signature gathering phase, Sawant has filed an appeal in hopes of overturning the ruling. Sawant filed the appeal with the Washington State Supreme Court on Oct. 2. King County Judge Jim Rogers had ruled on Sept. 17 that a recall petition filed by Ernest Lou could move forward, upholding four of six charges levied by Lou. Judge Rogers dismissed two charges, which had claimed that Sawant encouraged the occupation of the Seattle Police Department’s East Precinct, and that she helped to...

    A unanimous Washington State Supreme Court tossed out the effort to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, ruling that the accusations against her did not rise to the level that would allow a citizen initiative to remove her from office. The decision kills the push to recall the mayor and means that, barring unforeseen circumstances, voters in 2021 will have the final say on Durkan’s job performance, should she choose to run for a second term. “The allegations in this case are deeply troubling and our review requires that we treat the factual allegations as true,” the court wrote in a...

    LANSING, MI -- Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel will no longer enforce the governor’s executive orders by criminal prosecution, though she urges residents to continue following COVID-19 safety guidelines. The announcement from Nessel’s office comes after the Michigan Supreme Court decision on Friday, Oct. 2, ruled the governor does not have authority to extend emergency orders under two emergency acts -- the Emergency Management Act from 1976 and the Emergency Powers of the Governor Act from 1945. Neither act, the court ruled, gave Gov. Gretchen Whitmer the authority to continue declaring states of emergency or issuing unilateral orders under them...

Lou said he was fed up after recent demonstrations, which included a sit-in at City Hall and march to the home of Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan. Those are just...

    The push to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan is based on a policy disagreement, not a violation of any law or standard, and the petitioners leading the recall haven’t identified what steps Durkan should have taken in the wake of June’s widespread protests, Durkan argued in appealing her case to the state Supreme Court. Durkan’s argument, filed Monday, reprises some of the arguments she made in King County Superior Court, where a judge ruled that the recall effort could move forward, but also adds some new ones. “Following the most widespread civil unrest Seattle has seen in decades, Petitioners submitted,...

    King County Superior Court Judge Mary Roberts' decision to allow a recall petition to go forward has Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) riled. Since it was the police use of tear gas to disperse a mob that inspired the petition, Durkan contends that "it is Police Chief Carmen Best who is really to blame. Look, I did everything I could to aid those disrupting the city. I ordered the police to leave them alone. I even ceded a bit of real estate for them to proclaim their autonomous zone. Chief Best went against my orders. It is unfair that I be...

    Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has asked a King County judge to reconsider her ruling to allow a recall petition to proceed against the mayor, arguing the use of tear gas to disperse protesters was a decision made by police Chief Carmen Best, not the mayor, and that it was a reasonable one. King County Superior Court Judge Mary E. Roberts last week dismissed six claims against Durkan as insufficient for a recall, but allowed a seventh to go forward. That claim alleged Durkan failed to implement new policing policies after tear gas and other chemical agents were used on protesters....

    A judge ruled Friday that a petition to recall Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan can move forward as there was enough evidence for one of seven allegations against her, accusing the mayor of violating her oath of office.

The charge reads: Charge B alleges that Mayor Durkan failed to institute new policies and safety measures for SPD to prohibit the use of tear gas and other chemical crowd control agents by SPD when such use...
