Boulder County judges recuse selves from Marshall Fire cleanup case

Colorado Politics: In an unusual move, all of the judges in Boulder County have recused themselves from deciding whether to block the recently-awarded contract for cleanup of debris from the Marshall Fire.

Demanding Integrity in Government Spending (DIGS), a nonprofit corporation that registered in Colorado three weeks before it filed a preliminary injunction request in Boulder County District Court, alleges that the county violated the state’s open meetings law when it evaluated proposals and ultimately selected DRC Emergency Services as the entity responsible for cleaning up the aftermath of the suburban blaze.

The Marshall Fire, which was the most destructive in the state’s history, consumed nearly 1,100 homes and businesses in Boulder County in late December. The cause is still under investigation.
