The state Supreme Court, in an opinion issued this morning, has found that a recall effort against Pacific Mayor Cy Sun is legally sufficient to move ahead.
Donald Thomson filed a so-called statement of charges against Sun in August 2012. Thomson cited a number of instances of alleged misconduct he contends makes Sun unfit for office. King County Superior Court Judge Laura Inveen found two of those charges sufficient to be put before voters:
* That Sun used the citys police department as his personal investigative force.protest1_3
* That he jeopardized the citys liability insurance coverage by not filling vacant department head positions.
Sun appealed Inveens decision to the Supreme Court.
