A lawsuit filed against the state by a civil-rights group -- as well as backers of a challenger to Gov. Bill Walker -- got its first hearing Wednesday. 

The filing comes after the Department of Transportation's crackdown on enforcement of a state law that led to the seizure of dozens of campaign signs before last month's primary elections. 

The plaintiffs are seeking an injunction to immediately block enforcement of a 1988 statute under which the state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities removed signs. Initial court documents submitted by the plaintiffs also seek to have the statute declared unconstitutional.
