The “Donor Disclosure” lawsuit is about the City of Denver’s ordinance to cause any organization to become an issue committee for speaking out about a Denver ballot measure. Our two organizations (TABOR Committee and the CUT Foundation) are the plaintiffs. We are represented by the Goldwater Institute. We lost on the issue of standing in District Court on February 5, 2019. Our attorneys have met the deadlines for an appeal.
