State Court Upholds Change in Telluride Curfew

On March 20, 2013, the Colorado District Court granted summary judgment for Firm client, Telluride Regional Airport Authority, in a suit over the nighttime curfew at the Telluride Regional Airport in Colorado.  In 2011, the Airport Authority expanded the hours during which the Airport is operational each day.  Plaintiffs claimed that the change was inconsistent with the Special Use Permit for the Airport and subject to review under the San Miguel County land use code.  The court dismissed plaintiff’s claim for mandamus relief on the basis that the County’s enforcement of its land use code is discretionary.
