The future of controversial so-called clean government Amendment 54 has been fast-tracked by the Colorado Supreme Court. This week the Court directed attorneys to submit records by next Friday, Sept. 4. Court arguments will begin in the fall.
“There’s a perceived obligation to get appellate clarity when the voters have adopted a law and it has been declared unconstitutional,” said Mark Grueskin, one of the high-powered attorneys who represented plaintiffs fighting the amendment. “There’s just added importance to getting the Supreme Court to weigh in and say there is or is not a problem.”
