The legal battle over the language used in a ballot question that if passed would disband the Minneapolis Police Department is continuing and a Hennepin County judge is considering arguments made in her courtroom Monday.

A lawsuit from a group of city residents argues the ballot question's wording is still too vague, even after the city council approved new language last week.

The group's attorney says the question is not only vague but also misleading, KTSP reports.

"I think everybody who is arguing on both sides of this wants the question to be fairly put before the voters, but to put it fairly before the voters, the voters have to understand what they are talking about and being asked of them, and this question just doesn't do that, so that's the problem," attorney Joseph W. Anthony said.

The judge said she would take the arguments under advisement.

Early voting in Minneapolis is set to begin on Friday.
