Christo is pleased that the Colorado State Parks Cooperative Agreement with Over The River has been upheld again, this time in a unanimous decision by all three presiding Colorado Court of Appeals judges.
“This ruling, together with the early January federal court decision upholding the Bureau of Land Management’s approval of Over The River, puts us much closer to realizing the vision that Jeanne-Claude and I first had more than two decades ago,” Christo said.
This is the second time this challenge has been dismissed. It was originally rejected by the state district court in September 2013.
“These two favorable court rulings are a victory for the countless supporters from Colorado and around the world who have stood with us wanting to see Over The River realized,” Christo added. “Their steady and strong support over the years helped get us to where we are today.”
The only remaining legal hurdle facing this two-week temporary work of art is in the U.S. Court of Appeals.
