This after­noon, the Wash­ing­ton State Supreme Court is hear­ing oral argu­ments in League of Women Vot­ers, et al. v. State of Wash­ing­ton, a law­suit brought by a coali­tion of orga­ni­za­tions that con­tend that Ini­tia­tive 1240 (which autho­rized the cre­ation of char­ter schools in Wash­ing­ton) is unconstitutional.

If you’re inter­est­ed in watch­ing or lis­ten­ing live, tune in to TVW., Wash­ing­ton State’s equiv­a­lent of C‑SPAN. TVW is car­ried by most cable providers (i.e. Fron­tier, Com­cast) and it also streams its sig­nal over the Net.

Here are links to the briefs (note these are all PDFs):

After oral argu­ments have con­clud­ed, I’ll update this post with analysis.
