The lawsuit, filed through its South Dakota subsidiary Powertech (USA) Inc., claims that recently-adopted rules and regulations implementing House Bill 08-1161 and Senate Bill 08-228 are arbitrary, capricious and exceed Colorado statutory authority. The action was filed in Denver State District Court.
