    GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (CBS4) – Several hundred people came out Monday night to tell Greenwood Village they will not stand for its resolution pulling away from Colorado’s new police accountability law. “We’re not going to let this decision by Greenwood Village bring us down, we’re not done yet,” said Apryl Alexander of Black Lives Matter 5280. She was one of the speakers as the crowd listened to music and then marched as the City Council met for a work session only feet away inside city hall. The issue was not on their agenda this night. But it was on the minds of the protestors and the musicians who gathered outside.

    Concerts may be canceled, but some of Denver's biggest musicians are planning to play on, this time at a protest tonight, July 20, in Greenwood Village, in an attempt to persuade that town to overturn its new policy protecting police officers from financial liability in civil cases, even if they acted illegally or in bad faith. That resolution, approved unanimously two weeks ago by the Greenwood Village City Council, was a response to the new state police-reform law that would hold officers accountable for up to $25,000 in misconduct cases. Over the weekend, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats, the Lumineers, Spirit of Grace and Flobots announced a boycott against Greenwood Village and the largest venue in it, Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre, which is owned by the Museum of Outdoor Arts, an Englewood-based nonprofit.

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (CBS4) – City leaders in Greenwood Village face mounting backlash to their decision to protect police officers in a new city resolution (Resolution 40-20). The resolution shields Greenwood Village police officers from personal financial liability under Colorado’s new police reform law (SB 217). The resolution passed unanimously on July 9. (credit: CBS) The new state law eliminates qualified immunity as a defense in civil cases. Instead, a police officer can be held liable for up to 5% of the judgement up to $25,000 if the police officer’s employer finds that the officer acted in bad faith. There are two separate movements to call for the city to repeal that resolution. Colorado musicians are calling for a boycott of Fiddler’s Green, an amphitheatre within city limits. The Lumineers is one of the groups saying the resolution is in contradiction to the Black Lives Matter movement and overwhelming bipartisan support to “the strongest reforms to police accountability law ever introduced in our state,” said Progress Now Colorado, the group behind the boycott.

    Incensed by Greenwood Village City Council's new resolution protecting police officers from personal liability in civil lawsuits, Nathaniel Rateliff and the members of his band, the Night Sweats, along with the musicians in The Lumineers, Flobots and Spirit of Grace are launching a boycott against the city and Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre a massive venue located in Greenwood Village. In a letter to Greenwood Village City Council, the musicians called for an immediate repeal of the resolution and called on their fellow artists to refuse to play Fiddler's Green until the measure has been repealed. The resolution was a response to SB-217, a statewide police reform bill that lawmakers passed in the wake of protests against the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police. Among other things, the new Colorado law made individual officers liable for up to $25,000 if they were sued and their employers determined they broke the law or acted in bad faith.Related Stories Greenwood Village Resolves to Use Police-Reform Law Loophole Representative Herod Ready to Introduce Bill to Close SB-217 Loopholes Protest Targets Greenwood Village Council...
    Civil rights demonstrations and recall threats be damned, Greenwood Village is doubling down on its vow to work around a key tenet of SB-217, Colorado's new police reform and accountability law: protecting law enforcement officers from having to pay out personally. "Based on our workforce, training and culture that have existed for a long time in our City, we do not believe that the added potential punishment of a $25,000 judgment will affect their actions one way or another in those few seconds of crisis when officers have to make split-second life or death decisions," the city said in a July 9 statement, offered after the Greenwood Village City Council was deluged with criticism for passing a resolution on July 6 promising to always pick up the tab for police officers who get sued under the new law. SB-217, which was approved by Colorado lawmakers after thousands of protesters took to the streets across the state to protest racist law enforcement actions, contains a number of ground-breaking reforms. It also ended immunity for law enforcement officers, allowing a personal liability...

Instead, a police officer can be held liable for up to 5% of the judgement up to $25,000 if the police officer’s employer finds that the officer acted in bad faith.

The city plans to take on all expenses incurred by a civil proceeding or lawsuit brought against an officer under the new law, including court costs, attorney fees, judgements and fines. “The resolution passed by the Greenwood Village City Council goes against the spirit of the law and the importance of ensuring accountability for wrongful conduct,” said Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser in a statement Wednesday to CBS4. “We need to address this action and work to build trust...
    Local high school students will be protesting outside of Greenwood Village City Hall at 4 p.m. today, July 9. Greenwood Village City Council just attempted an end-run around Colorado's new police reform law, passing a resolution declaring that the city will defend its police officers and cover their legal costs connected to any lawsuits brought under SB-217, a sweeping bipartisan police accountability and reform bill passed by the Colorado Legislature last month. The new law includes a provision that creates up to $25,000 in personal civil liability for law enforcement officers when an employer determines that the officer acted in bad faith or knew that what they were doing was illegal; the council move would pick up the tab for that. "That’s a huge step back to remove any personal officer liability and kind of take an officer’s skin back out of the game that was put into the game," says Ramsey Headrick, an 18-year-old senior at Cherry Creek High School who is organizing the protest. Headrick, who marched in recent civil rights protests in both Denver and Aurora calls council's...
    The City Council of the Denver suburb of Greenwood Village, Colorado, passed a resolution on Wednesday that effectively nullifies a portion of a new statewide policing law. The resolution, which was unanimously passed on Monday, requires the city to find that a police officer accused of wrongdoing did not act in bad faith. This clashes with a Colorado law passed in June that allows victims of police brutality to sue the officer involved in the incident if the city finds that the officer acted in bad faith. “The intent of Council’s resolution was simply to inform its officers that as their employer, they would not make such a (bad-faith) finding no matter what,” Greenwood Village city attorney Tonya Haas Davidson told the Denver Post. “Nowhere in the law is an employer ever required to make a finding of bad faith.” The statewide law leaves officers financially responsible for 5% of the settlement up to $25,000 in damages if the city faces a lawsuit because of actions the officer took in bad faith. This restricts an officer's qualified immunity, which...
    Greenwood Village, Colorado unanimously passed legislation Wednesday to counter financial liability for officer misconduct created in the new state police reform law, per The Denver Post. JUST IN: Greenwood council members unanimously passed a resolution saying the city will never find its officers acted in bad faith. That effectively shields them from having to face personal financial liability for misconduct on the job https://t.co/6FKwhI4HGl — The Denver Post (@denverpost) July 8, 2020 The legislation reportedly subverts the section of Colorado State Bill SB 217 that requires police officers to pay for part of their legal judgement if they are found guilty of police misconduct. The order is based on whether the police department deems that the misconduct was done in “good faith.” (RELATED: Security Guard Charged With Murder For Allegedly Shooting Customer Who Wasn’t Wearing A Mask) “The intent of Council’s resolution was simply to inform its officers that as their employer, they would not make such a (bad-faith) finding no matter what,” Tonya Haas Davidson, Greenwood Village city attorney, said to The Denver Post. “Nowhere in the law is...
