TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - An open-government advocate is asking a judge to declare private meetings between Seattle and Tacoma port commissioners illegal.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1mygVrQ) Arthur West of Olympia filed a lawsuit Thursday in King County.

The two port commissions have held eight non-public meetings to discuss strategies to attract more shipping business to Puget Sound. The commissions say the executive sessions are legal because they’re discussing sensitive financial and operating information.
