Colorado Supreme Court Opinions
April 15, 2013

2013 CO 25. No. 12SA287. In re Gateway Logistics, Inc. v. Smay.
Privacy Interests—CRCP 26.

In this original proceeding brought under CAR 21, the Supreme Court concluded that the trial court abused its discretion by granting a motion to compel discovery without making findings of fact balancing defendants’ asserted privacy interest with plaintiffs’ need for the information sought, as required by In re District Court, 256 P.3d 687 (Colo. 2011). Accordingly, the Court made the rule absolute, vacated the portion of the trial court’s order compelling the discovery, and remanded the case to the trial court.
