Colorado Sues Boulder County For Fracking Time-Out

Boulder County is being sued by the state of Colorado over its continued moratorium on new oil and gas development. In a letter sent to Boulder County Commissioners Jan. 26, Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman threatened legal action if the county didn’t begin permitting new oil and gas development including fracking, on unincorporated county land by Feb. 10. The deadline passed – without any permitting change from Boulder County – and a complaint, the initial legal document to begin a lawsuit, was received by county officials Feb. 14.
