Broomfield Fracking on Hold, For Now

iStock_000024273606_Medium.jpg

The judge has refused to invalidate Broomfield's moratorium on fracking, by way of suspending a lawsuit brought by the Colorado Oil and Gas Association. Mind you, this is a temporary thing - a kind of litigation purgatory - because there are two similar cases at the Court of Appeals involving Longmont and Fort Collins.

As Kimberli Turner reports for the Boulder Daily Camera, District Court Judge C. Scott Crabtree doesn't want to waste time on an issue that may soon be decided in the Court of Appeals. Both the Longmont and Fort Collins cases involve voter-approved fracking bans (five-year moratoriums) that lower courts struck down.

Those Broomfield residents who oppose fracking can rest easy, at least for now, though anxiety levels may rise as hearing dates get closer and the Court of Appeals issues its decision. It appears as though what happens in the Longmont and Fort Collins cases will largely determine what will happen to Broomfield's fracking moratorium.

At Ciancio Ciancio Brown, P.C., based in Broomfield, a major part of our practice involves environmental law, in which we counsel businesses, developers and municipalities on governmental regulation, compliance, and special projects. Call 303-416-5457 to speak with us about your situation.
