Denver, CO asked in Real Estate Law, Land Use & Zoning and Landlord - Tenant for Colorado

Q: I am researching the Colorado rent control ban. How do I find out about the original court case that it came from?

I know if happened in Boulder in 1980. but I cannot find any other information. I would love to know the name of the case, and even some details about who brought it to court, and how the decision was made. Do you have any advice on finding this kind of information? Thank you!

A: The Colorado legislature made rent control by municipalities illegal and that position was affirmed by the Colorado Supreme Court. Chief Justice Malarkey dissented but was out voted. The legislature could always change that. That would be a bad idea in my opinion. See the link below.
