A City of Vincent resident is planning to sue the State Government over "unlawful and forced" council amalgamations proposed in the metropolitan area.
Former Vincent councillor Ian Ker will be represented by high-profile lawyer John Hammond.
Mr Hammond said his client was prepared to take Local Government Minister Tony Simpson to the Supreme Court if he did not agree to withdraw the proposals for the boundary adjustments planned in Perth.
Mr Ker will first seek to present his case to the Local Government Advisory Board, which is tasked with making final recommendations to the Minister.
