Colorado Open Records Act (CORA)
The Colorado Open Records Act "CORA" requires that most public records be available to the public. A "public record" includes most writings made, maintained, or kept by public agencies. However, there are some exceptions concerning records made available under CORA.
Colorado law says that "any person" may inspect public records. "Person" includes any natural person, as well as corporations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and associations.
We can help you get connected with an attorney. If a court determines that a custodian of a public record has improperly denied the right of inspection of a public record under CORA, the court must award court costs and reasonable attorney fees to the prevailing party. If a person willfully and knowingly violates CORA, the person commits a misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $100, imprisonment in county jail for not more than 90 days, or both.
We recommend setting up an anonymous email address to interact with our site and a pre-paid credit card that you purchased using cash. These steps will limit your exposure.
