( Cincinnati ) - The group that's been fighting the city's plan to lease parking to the Port Authority for more than $90 million up front says it's undeterred after Wednesday's Appeals Court ruling.
That three-judge panel on Wednesday ruled that Judge Robert Winkler's block of the plan should be rescinded.
"First and foremost, we need the appeals court to essentially stay their decision and not allow Judge Winkler to release the injuction, which would allow the city to go ahead and sign the lease," says westside activist and plantiff in the original lawsuit, Pete Witte. His group has filed an appeal to the Ohio Supreme Court.
They're not only against the parking plan, which they've called a raw deal for Cincinnati. They're also against the city's use of the emergency clause to pass the measure, since that prevents citizens from fighting laws with petitions and referendums.
