Oklahoma citizen lawsuits

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma City - An Oklahoma city attorney is asking the state supreme court to step in on his challenge of state law.

A law signed by Gov. Mary Fallin in 2011 changes the required signatures for certain lawsuits from 10 taxpayers to 100 registered voters.

Those lawsuits are those filed by citizens in an effort to stop a questionable government action.

And critics of the change say that unconstitutionally limits citizens' access to the courts.
