EL PASO COUNTY CANDIDATE COALITION UPDATES:
You have all been in faithful prayer and waiting while we take our fight to the higher courts, and now we have more updates for you. The Coalition filed our petitions with the Colorado Supreme Court on Wednesday, 8/31. The Court had three business days to decide if they would accept jurisdiction over the case and make an official ruling shortly thereafter. Our team was notified on Friday, 9/2, of the Court's response: "IT IS ORDERED, the Court declines to accept jurisdiction".
While definitely disappointing, the ruling by the progressive-minded, Democrat-heavy (6 of 7 justices) CO Supreme Court, working in conjunction with the progressive Democrat Attorney General, to not even consider our case was sadly not unexpected. While both prayerful and hopeful for a different outcome, we were prepared for this ruling and thankful to have gotten a timely response that allows us to move forward with our next step in rapid fashion.
We are now preparing our brief for filing with SCOTUS. Our legal team anticipates filing with SCOTUS as soon as possible and we are hopeful that we will gain a full review on an accelerated schedule. We will not cease our pursuit until all options have been explored and exhausted.
Our Coalition update meeting originally scheduled for Sunday, 9/4 has been CANCELLED due to the holiday weekend. We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting- Sunday, 9/11, @ 6 PM. Location: 3337 North Academy Blvd, 80917.
