Colorado Supreme Court to hear case challenging state ethics commission’s role

Joey Bunch (Denver Post)- The Colorado Supreme Court agreed Monday to hear issues in a 2013 ethics case involving then-Secretary of State Scott Gessler, marking the first time the high court has looked at how the state Independent Ethics Commission operates since it was created after voters passed Amendment 41 in 2006.
