Both PERA and the Attorney General filed their opening answer briefs Thursday with the Colorado Supreme Court. Additionally, PERA filed an appendix that includes the Attorney General Ken Salazar’s 2004 opinion on this subject. The appendix also includes a full transcript of the Senate and House Finance Committees’ hearings that were held in the opening days of the 2010 legislaive session. They provide fascinating reading for those with time to do so. The reader should note that there are many inaccuracies in the wording of the transcripts and therefore when words or ideas don’t make sense to you that is likely the reason. You may view these and all filed documents by clicking http://saveperacola.com/resources/ and then the document you wish to view. They are listed by date with the newest first. We welcome your sensible comments, regardless of your position.
From here, plaintiffs will file a reply brief and the defendants will also file a reply brief. Each should take less than two months. From there, the Colorado Supreme Court will direct further activity in the case.
