DENVER – Colorado Attorney General John W. Suthers applauded a decision released today by the Colorado Court of Appeals in the case of Lobato, et al. v. State of Colorado. The Court dismissed the plaintiffs’ appeal, which claimed the State fails to provide adequate funding to public schools.
“The judges have rightly held that the question of school funding is one for Colorado’s citizens and their elected representatives, not for the courts,” commented Attorney General Suthers. “This decision is a major victory for representative government in Colorado.”
