Washington state is suing its Highway 99 tunnel contractors — but for the sake of cooperation during construction, asks local courts not to hear the case until the delayed four-lane tunnel from Sodo to South Lake Union is done.
The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) says it filed the lawsuit Friday to preserve its future rights to collect from contracting team Seattle Tunnel Partners (STP).
The five-page complaint alleges STP “has failed to fulfill its obligations” under its $1.35 billion contract with the state.

I suspect that Seattle Tunnel Partners has better lawyers than the state does.
