Rejecting the argument of a trauma surgeon’s lawyers, a judge ruled that a 2018 state law limits the scope of Denver Health and Hospital Authority records subject to disclosure under the Colorado Open Records Act.
Denver Health and Hospital Authority
A trauma surgeon’s lawsuit is testing the scope of a 2018 statute that concerns the public disclosure of Denver Health and Hospital Authority records.
Unlike a year ago, when state lawmakers improved access to public records, the 2018 session of the Colorado General Assembly was marked by the passage of legislation that will significantly hinder the public’s right to know if it’s signed into law.
Legislation that limits public access to the records of the Denver Health and Hospital Authority won the support of a committee of state lawmakers.
