The Colorado Supreme Court has agreed to hear three cases implicating the government’s ability to deny applications for charter schools and for Good Samaritans to receive compensation for injuries they suffer during a rescue.
The justices also announced on Tuesday they will review a complex and long-running consumer protection lawsuit against a for-profit college, which culminated in the state’s Court of Appeals wiping away a judge’s $3 million penalty against the company last year.
All three cases arose from Denver, although two of them have been ongoing for nearly a decade. In addition, one case is making a repeat appearance before the Supreme Court, with the justices now willing to hear a different issue than the one decided in their previous ruling.
