The Court of Appeals in Kansas City will hear oral arguments next month as several Kansas City, Mo., business owners try to keep alive their lawsuit challenging the legality of the funding mechanism for the city's proposed $102 million downtown streetcar line.

The arguments are scheduled for July 16, according to attorney Mark Bredemeier who represents the businesses. The city had sought for the case to be transferred directly to the state Supreme Court but that application was denied.
