On May 23, 2014 Friends of Denver Parks, Steve Waldstein, and Zelda Hawkins filed their Motion for Post-Trial Relief. The motion asks Judge Herbert L. Stern III to reverse his previous order granting summary judgment for the City and DPS, and re-schedule the case for trial.
Copies of the Motion and Exhibits are attached. It may be of interest to you that DPS produced a “smoking gun” document in discovery in which both Defendants acknowledged that Hampden Heights North Park is a Park. The document is Exhibit 3 attached to the motion.
Once again, thanks to all of you and to Russ Jones of Benson & Case for his fine work on the brief.
We will see where this adventure leads next. Look for Friends of Denver Parks to continue this fight in the courts, and to launch a ballot initiative to protect all Denver parks in the near future.
Love and courage, John
