In response to the withdrawal of the lawsuit against Mayor Murray, former U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan released the following statement:
Mayor Murray and his husband Michael are friends, and I know how painful and difficult this time has been for them. I wish them a time of healing now that this cloud has been lifted and the lawsuit against the mayor has been withdrawn. Ed Murray has been, and continues to be, a strong and progressive civic leader. He has been a strong mayor and has led Seattle with a just and equitable vision. I look forward to continue working with him in the months and years to come.
