Rick Noack, The Washington Post Published 6:23 am, Thursday, June 28, 2018 Whenever a seat opens up on the U.S. Supreme Court, the political battle over the next justice is fierce. And to some people, that's a huge problem.

The three-judge panel of the Colorado Court of Appeals dismissed Lafayette’s attempted eminent domain action, upholding a district court ruling from 2017 that spurned the city’s condemnation of 22 acres in Erie at the southeast corner of U.S. 287 and Arapahoe Road, where the Boulder County municipalities share a border. The appeals court concluded that Lafayette’s 2016 open-space play, sold by the city as an attempt to create a buffer for its Beacon Hill neighborhood, was actually a ploy by the city to derail Erie’s planned commercial development at the site, known as Nine Mile Corner.
