Legal jockeying will continue tomorrow

The City Attorney’s Office and opponents of San Francisco’s proposed bike plan will get in their next round of arguments tomorrow, in anticipation of the final decision on the much-debate proposal, which is expected to come on November 2.

On October 13, lawyers representing Coalition for Adequate Review, a group founded by local blogger Rob Anderson  filed an opposition petition against The City Attorney’s Office, which had attempted to dissolve a legal injunction against the Bike Plan, a city-backed initiative to install 34 miles of new cycling lanes in San Francisco.

Tomorrow, the City Attorney’s Office will get to kindly restate their position about why they think the Bike Plan, first approved in 2005, should be finally implemented. This legal jockeying is simply a formality before the big showdown on November 2, when a Superior Court Judge will hold a hearing with both parties, at which time it’s expected he’ll make a decision on whether to allow the plan to move forward.
