Aspen moratorium debate goes to judge for ruling

The Aspen Times: Judge Anne Norrdin will have some reading to do this week before she decides on whether Aspen violated the Colorado Open Meetings Law when the City Council approved a temporary ban on residential development and new licenses for vacation rentals.

Both plaintiff Aspen Board of Realtors and the defendant city government filed their closing arguments Friday in Pitkin County District Court, which is where the moratorium is being challenged through both a motion for preliminary injunction and a lawsuit.

While the lawsuit is pending before the court, Norrdin said at the conclusion of a two-day hearing Feb. 25 that she would aim to make a ruling on the preliminary-injunction motion by the end of this week.
