Seattle CHAZ Zone prompts lawsuit from businesses and residents
Numerous Seattle businesses - including an auto repair shop, a tattoo parlor and a property management company - sued the city Wednesday, alleging city officials were complicit in allowing an "occupied protest" that has made them feel unsafe in their neighborhood, according to reports . . .
Workers and residents also joined the lawsuit over CHOP, the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest, which drew scorn from President Trump and other critics who accused Mayor Jenny Durkan, the city's police chief and other city leaders of turning the area over to "anarchists."
