Subject: I-1000 Ballot Title Court Hearing Tomorrow, Friday 29 at 9:00 AM in Olympia

Coalition Against Assisted Suicide
No to I-1000
What: Superior Court to Decide Ballot Title for Initiative I-1000
Friday, Feb. 29 at 9:00 AM
Where: Thurston County Superior Court, Olympia, Washington

We'd like to encourage all of our supporters to attend the hearing tomorrow to show support for the Coalition Against Assisted Suicide, when Judge Wickham hears our challenge to the ballot title. The hearing begins at 9:00 am and could last for a couple of hours. Directions to the Courthouse are below.
The Coalition will also be having a conference call, tomorrow afternoon (2/29/08) at 2:00pm to discuss the results of the hearing. All are invited to attend. The conference call number is: 1-888-279-8209, Password 8282.

The Attorney General wrote a ballot title that we feel does not clearly show that the proposed measure legalizes "assisted suicide." We are seeking to have that language in the title of the initiative. During the 3 weeks this case has been pending, the proponents have not been able to print petitions or begin signature gathering.
If you have any questions, are able to attend, or need more information, please call the Coalition at: 206-337-2091
