Met Council moves to block judge’s order in SWLRT lawsuit


Metropolitan Council objected this week a judge’s order that the agency share documents with a citizens group suing over the $1.77-billion Southwest Light Rail Transit project.

On Jan. 11, U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Steven Rau gave Met Council 15 days to share communications records with Lakes and Parks Alliance of Minneapolis, which is seeking to stop the routing of light rail through Minneapolis’ Kenilworth Corridor. On Monday, one day before the deadline, Met Council filed an objection to Rau’s order.
