More than TABOR suffered defeat in the Colorado Supreme Court’s recent decision

Updated: Apr 25, 2020

The Colorado Supreme Court decision that cleared the path for that debate may contain an even more potent and far-reaching consequence: the weakening of stare decisis and judicial precedent.

Marquez may be my favorite justice on the Colorado bench, even though I know we hold many different perspectives and I don’t always agree with her decisions (particularly when she’s ruled against my clients!).

She writes with precision and clarity and always makes well-reasoned, analytical arguments, frequently with a little bite to them. She may not appreciate it, but in many ways her style reminds me a bit of the late Justice Antonin Scalia.

So, when Marquez dissented from the opinion penned by Justice Richard Gabriel, another member of the presumed liberal block, I couldn’t wait to read it and see what drove the disagreement.
