Complete Colorado takes state health agency to court over withheld public records

Complete Colorado: After being unable to come to a satisfactory resolution with the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF), the online news organization Complete Colorado has filed a petition in Denver District Court to compel the agency to show cause for holding back numerous documents as part of a Colorado Open Record Act (CORA) request.

That request, originally filed in March, initially was purported to include “almost 2,000 records.” However, HCPF ultimately released just 318 documents, claiming the rest to be exempted by either attorney-client privilege or deliberative process privilege.

Complete Colorado paid $2,500 for the incomplete CORA request.
