By Larry . . . NARSOL is extremely disappointed to announce the long-awaited decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
To refresh your memory since this case has been pending for several years, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch found that Colorado’s sex offender registration scheme was unconstitutional back in August, 2017. The state appealed Judge Matsch’s decision to the Court of Appeals. NARSOL filed an amicus, and a group of legal scholars filed a separate brief. Unfortunately, the three-judge panel reversed Judge Matsch and remanded the case.
NARSOL will be providing a more detailed analysis in the next few days. In the meantime, you can read the opinion here. Also, the case will be discussed this Saturday of the Registry Matters Podcast. The podcast is distributed on Monday via YouTube or you can sign up for notification at registrymatters.co.
