Firm/Organization: Amendment 23 Challenge - Colorado Lawyers Committee
Location: Denver

Areas of Practice:
Education Law
Legislative/Public Policy
Class Action

Description of project: Amendment 23 to the Colorado Constitution was passed in 2000 to reverse a decade of budget cuts experienced by Colorado school districts throughout the 1990s. In order to restore educational funding to 1988 levels, Amendment 23 requires K-12 funding to increase by inflation plus 1% from 2001-2011 and by inflation after that. Because of the economic downturn and Colorados resulting budget crisis, Amendment 23 was not fully implemented through 2011. For the last three years, the legislature has reinterpreted Amendment 23 to cut education funding by almost $1 billion per year. The Education Task Force is preparing a lawsuit that alleges these drastic cuts are a violation of Amendment 23. Tim Macdonald (Arnold & Porter LLP) and Sean Connelly (Reilly Pozner LLP) lead this team.

Description of project: Since 1993, volunteers have presented trials to schools and community groups for students (grades 6 and up) based on a fictional case arising from a violation of Colorados Hate/Bias-Motivated Crimes Statute (formerly the Ethnic Intimidation Statute). At the conclusion of the trial, small discussion groups of students become juries to discuss the issues presented and, with the assistance of an adult facilitator, reach a verdict. The students become very engaged in discussing diversity in their community and the value of preventing the spread of racial slurs and hateful actions. The program needs volunteers to serve as prosecutors, defense attorneys and facilitators. This is a great chance for lawyers and students to practice their advocacy skills in front of a live audience and for non-litigators and non-lawyers to be involved in a fun activity that makes a difference.

Areas of Practice:

Description of project: This task force works on strategies to assure that individuals who participate in Colorados Community Corrections program have access to health care. The federal government has taken the position that these individuals are not eligible for federal health care benefits; as a result, when Colorados Medicaid expansion went into effect, Community Corrections residents were not eligible for either Medicaid or for benefits under the Affordable Care Act. As a result, these individuals will continue to seek medical care in emergency rooms, where the cost of treatment is significantly higher, or reoffend and return to prison to receive health care for more serious medical needs like pregnancy or cancer. Currently, the Task Force is working with the State to encourage the federal government to change its position so this population can receive federally funded health care benefits.

Areas of Practice:
Land Use

Description of project: The Taylor Ranch litigation dates back to a dispute about access to a 77,500 acre mountainous parcel originated with promises made in the mid-18002s that Mexican settlers on the Sangre de Cristo Land Grant would have access to the mountainous regions near their homes for uses necessary for their survival. In 1960, Jack Taylor purchased and began to fence off land which had been used for grazing, timber, and wood gathering for more than 100 years, causing enormous disruption to the economic and social fabric of the local communities. Fast forward to 1996, and the Colorado Lawyers Committee became involved. With its work, a district Court began an identification process to identify the current owners of land entitled to access La Sierra. To date, the district court has examined title to over 6,300 parcels of land and found that all but approximately 300 parcels are entitled to access La Sierra. In 2009, more than 300 individuals provided notice that they intended to use La Sierra for either grazing or to gather timber or firewood. CLC continues to support these plaintiffs in the ongoing litigation.
