State Supreme Court Won’t Consider Governor’s Challenge To Attorney General’s Authority
Colorado’s State Supreme Court won't prevent Attorney General Cynthia Coffman from proceeding with a lawsuit against the federal government at this time.
Governor John Hickenlooper filed a petition last month arguing that Coffman doesn’t have the authority to sue the federal government without the governor’s consent.
On Thursday, the Justices declined to hear the matter.
Kathy Green, a spokesperson for the Governor's office, says the court has left the matter "undecided."
