Surprisingly enough, we were able to get on the Colorado Supreme Court’s current session.
ATTORNEY’S ORAL ARGUMENTS IN THE INDEPENDENCE WATER GRAB CASE IS NOW SET FOR: Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at 1:00 p.m., in Supreme Court Courtroom at 1:00 p.m., 2 East 14th Avenue, Fourth Floor, Denver.
Hopefully, it’s helpful to have argument just a few months after the appellate briefs were filed this November. I have included in this Newsletter my Newsletter from November 15th to you so you have the FCC II’s and the WECWUA’s responsive appellate briefs that will be argued on January 17th.
It is so important for as many of you as possible to attend so the court knows just how important our water is to all of us. Please put January 17th on your calendars.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS AND SPREAD THE WORD.! LET’S PACK THE COURT! THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE IN THIS CASE!! SEE YOU THERE!!

All of the communities impacted have been GREAT in staying involved and supporting this important, lengthy effort!!
A VERY SIGNIFICANT ASPECT OF THE LAWSUIT AT THIS STAGE OF THE PROCEEDINGS IS OUR REQUEST FOR ORAL ARGUMENT. WE ALL NEED TO ATTEND WHEN THE DATE FOR ORAL ARGUMENT IS SET!!!
