BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - A Kitsap County judge has cleared the way for a class-action lawsuit over downtown Bremerton’s navy blue street signs.

The Kitsap Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1TxoZn0 ) that attorneys successfully argued on Friday that the case should include anyone who has been issued a parking ticket in the city within the statute of limitations, so going back to 2012.

Plaintiff George Karl started the case after he received a parking ticket in 2014 because he couldn’t see a time limit. He says the city’s blue signs violate state and federal law because of their color.

The plaintiffs will ask the judge to require the city to install standard white and red parking signs and to distribute financial damages to people who have been ticketed.

An attorney for Bremerton says the signs comply with federal law.
