Judge in ACLU lawsuit limits request for documents

DENVER ” Denver and the Secret Service have until Thursday to provide certain documents sought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado and groups planning demonstrations at the Democratic National Convention.

The ACLU and the groups are challenging Denver’s planned locations for demonstrations and a parade during the convention Aug. 25-28.

They say the demonstration zone and parade route are out of sight and earshot of delegates entering the two venues, the Pepsi Center and Invesco Field at Mile High.

The groups won’t get all the documents they were seeking regarding plans to accommodate protests. In an order filed Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Kathleen Tafoya said some of their requests were too broad.

A hearing scheduled for Tuesday was canceled.
