Last week, we noted that the Colorado Rail Passenger Association didn't like the fact that the new-and-improved Union Station was finally starting to be built, since the advocacy group is still awaiting the results of a lawsuit they filed last May that demanded officials consider at other permutations for the construction.
To drive home their point, the association filed for a restraining order last Wednesday to cease all work until their legal case is wrapped up.
Last Friday, a federal judge refused to issue that order -- although ColoRail Board President Ira Schreiber says the denial was based on a technicality. That's why the group filed a slightly tweaked restraining order yesterday. "Both parties want this expedited," says Schreiber, who thinks the judge should rule on their new restraining order possibly later today or tomorrow.
