The Supreme Court of Washington filed 1 new opinion and Division Three of the Court of Appeals did not file any new published opinions on Thursday, October 24, 2013: 

Supreme Court

Cedar River Water & Sewer District v. King County

No. 86293-1

(October 24, 2013)

2013 Wash. LEXIS 859 

Areas: GOVERNMENT RELATIONS AND ADMINISTRATIVE LAW

            PROPERTY AND LAND USE LAW  

Brief: Two utility districts that contracted with the county for sewage treatment filed suit, arguing that the mitigation package agreed to by the county in a development agreement for siting a new wastewater treatment facility was excessive, among many other claims. The trial judge largely rejected the districts' claims. The Supreme Court largely affirmed, either because the claims were statutorily time barred or because the mitigation measures had a sufficient nexus to the goals of sewage treatment to be a valid use of sewage treatment fees.
