Litigation over current operations of the RMI quarry
Issues related to Rocky Mountain Industrials’ current quarry operations have become the subject of two lawsuits.
Glenwood Springs Citizens’ Alliance v. U.S. Bureau of Land Management
This case was filed on March 10, 2020, in U.S. District Court in Denver.
Rocky Mountain Industrials Inc. v. Garfield County
RMI filed lawsuits against Garfield County in May 2019 in both federal and state courts. The federal court case was stayed while action proceeded in state court.
Garfield County prevailed in its defense, winning a Garfield District Court ruling in January 2021 and a motion for summary judgment in June 2021. RMI appealed the ruling in August 2021. In February 2023, the Colorado Court of Appeals affirmed the District Court’s ruling.
