Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s Over The River continues to clear legal hurdles. On Monday, October 26, the Colorado Supreme Court denied a request for further review of the Colorado State Parks agreement that authorized the temporary work of art to move forward.
This decision marks the third time this complaint has been dismissed. The case was filed in July 2011, first denied in September 2013 and dismissed again in February 2015. The Colorado Supreme Court’s decision now effectively ends this challenge to the Colorado State Parks agreement with Over The River.
The only remaining legal hurdle facing this temporary work of art is in the U.S. Court of Appeals. It challenges a January 2015 Federal District Court ruling that upheld the Bureau of Land Management’s approval of Over The River. We will keep you posted as that case progresses.
