Judge dismisses Marshall Fire debris removal program lawsuit

Boulder Daily Camera: Visiting District Judge Stephen Howard on Monday dismissed a lawsuit that argued Boulder County violated Colorado’s Open Meetings Law when selecting a contractor to lead its post-Marshall Fire debris removal program.

In his written order, Howard focused on the fact that Michael Brown, who filed the lawsuit through a newly incorporated nonprofit Demanding Integrity in Government Spending, is not a Boulder County resident and did not have a particular connection to the county.

Further, the plaintiff did not claim that he would benefit or suffer harm based on the outcome of the contract bid award, Howard noted.
