A Denver District Court judge has ruled in favor of the City and County of Denver in a lawsuit filed by the Friends of Denver Parks over land that the city traded with Denver Public Schools in southeast Denver.
The lawsuit stems from a land swap where the city exchanged 11.5 acres at Hampden Heights Open Space near the intersection of Havana Street and Girard Avenue with Denver Public Schools, which gave the city a building at 1330 Fox St. Denver also gave DPS approximately $705,000 in the deal.

Denver City Council approved the deal on April 1, 2013.
