The City Attorney's Office says it may have a statement later today; depends if Tom Perkins wants to weigh in on a suit that'll find an afterlife in the appeals court. Because there will be an appeal: "No big surprise," Siegel tells Unfair Park via email. "Saves the time & expense of going to trial before the appeals court clarifies the governing legal standard of whether the City was required to come up with a certified & valid number of Petition signatures before calling a lawful election."
Update at 5:27 p.m.: Thie City Attorney's Office just sent a brief statement: As in: "Today's ruling confirms that the Dallas City Secretary and the Dallas City Council followed the State laws and City ordinances when placing the local option election on the ballot. The ruling also validates the decision of the Dallas voters."
