That income tax was declared illegal by King County Superior Court Judge Ruhl in 2017 . Seattle wanted to bypass the Court of Appeals and jump straight to the Supreme Court. In denying Seattle’s request, the odds have dramatically increased that the state Supreme Court may never weigh in other than to refuse to hear any appeal like they did with a…
