The Colorado Supreme Court issued its opinion in Hall v. Moreno on February 27, 2012.
The Supreme Court held that the district court adopted a lawful redistricting scheme in accordance with constitutional criteria and that the district court did not abuse its discretion in balancing the non-constitutional factors as set forth in CRS § 16 2-1-102. The Court further held that this balancing was reasonable and supported by the evidence that was heard during the district court’s thorough, inclusive, and nonpartisan proceedings. Accordingly, the Court affirmed the district court’s order that the Colorado Secretary of State implement the adopted redistricting scheme in future congressional elections.
