Court dismisses DPS appeal, ending executive session legal battle

The Denver Gazette: The Colorado Court of Appeals this week dismissed Denver Public Schools’ appeal of a court ordering the district release a video recording of its March 23 executive session, effectively ending the media’s legal battle for the recording.

DPS, too, has agreed to pay $28,000 of the legal costs incurred in the lawsuit brought by a coalition of media outlets, which includes The Denver Gazette and Colorado Politics.

At the heart of the district’s appeal was whether Denver District Court Judge Andrew J. Luxen had erred in reviewing and then revealing in his order details from the audio not disclosed at the time.
