Colorado Supreme Court Allows Judgment for Defrauded Taxpayers to Stand
Shareholder

Brian Matise and the Burg Simpson team of commercial litigation attorneys , and members of the Landmark Towers homeowners’ association, won an important victory today when the Colorado Supreme Court denied Colorado Bondshares and UMB Bank’s petition for certiorari review. This decision means that prior court decisions relieving Landmark Towers property owners from tax burdens of more than $17 million of bonds, and awarding tax refunds totaling millions of dollars, will stand. 

"We had to fend off legal challenges not only from the Marin District and billion-dollar Colorado Bondshares, but also the combined efforts of the Colorado Municipal Bond Dealers Association, Special District Association, Colorado Municipal League, and Colorado Association of Home Builders," s aid Matise, "But after eight years of litigation, the Courts recognized that special districts do not have unlimited power and must comply with due process.”
