Eugster pulls out of case at 11th hour…

According to the state Supreme Court clerk’s office, Spokane attorney Steve Eugster has withdrawn his appeal regarding the Puget Sound transportation ballot measure.


“Mr Eugster called around to the various counsel this morning, saying that he would like to drop his appeal if the other parties would agree not to ask the court to impose sanctions against him,” said Jeff Even, one of the attorneys handling the case for the state Attorney General’s office.

In 20 years as a lawyer, Even said, he’s never seen anything like this happen so late in the game during an appeal.

“We said `Well, OK, I guess we don’t have any objection to you dropping your appeal,” Even said.

Eugster’s pullout means that the transportation measure will proceed to the ballot in November as planned.

“It’s over,” Even said of the court case.
