Denver Direct: Fairplay?

Thursday, May 27, 2010


Editor’s note: We had originally planned to do an extensive story on our “Four Days in Fairplay” coverage of a hearing at the Park County Courthouse, with Judge Stephen A. Groome presiding, to determine whether or not a temporary restraining order against rancher Vern Wagner should be made permanent. This hearing would determine whether Wagner was “fit” to carry on his free-range cattle business, in which he has been engaged for over 50 years.

Judge Groome denied our request to videotape in the courtroom.

In light of the fact that the matter will be going to trial, we decided not to publish our opinions at this time. Instead, we present what video we were able to record. Go to The Flume for current print coverage.
