Clear the Bench's Matt Arnold: Court win for CO Ethics Watch a victory for big $ over little guy

The political pissing match between Colorado Ethics Watch and Clear the Bench Colorado, which wants to throw the bums off the state's supreme court, was resolved on Friday in CEW's favor. Granted, CEW will have to pay some court costs from a July hearing -- but Clear the Bench's Matt Arnold remains upset about the ruling and would love to appeal it. If only doing so wouldn't cost him so much time and money.
