Garnett: Lawsuit’s Dismissal is Win for Voters

DENVER, CO – House Majority Leader Alec Garnett, D-Denver, today released the following statement after the Denver District Court dismissed a politically motivated lawsuit that sought to block publication of the Ballot Information Booklet (Blue Book) as approved through the statutory process.

“It’s not a surprise that the court rejected this stunt almost as soon as it was filed,” said House Majority Leader Alec Garnett. “The Legislative Council and our staff take the responsibility of crafting the Blue Book and helping voters understand the issues before them very seriously. That’s why a bipartisan majority voted together to make it easier for voters to understand Amendment B. Now, in a win for voters, the court has agreed that the frivolous challenge seeking to confuse Coloradans should be dismissed.”
