SourceGas CMC decision upheld

The Colorado Court of Appeals this week upheld a 2013 decision by Garfield County District Court Judge James Boyd that a lease between SourceGas and Colorado Mountain College is “void and unenforceable.”

Boyd’s decision came in May of last year after SourceGas filed a lawsuit over CMC’s refusal to recognize the validity of a 5-acre lease on the college’s Spring Valley Campus. It had been slated for a compressor station to maintain pressure on a natural gas line between Rifle and Avon.

According to SourceGas’ website, construction on a station in the Spring Valley area began in October 2013.
