Coloradans rejecting Amendment 34

Early returns indicate that Colorado voters are rejecting by a wide margin lawyer-sponsored Amendment 34, which would amend the state constitution to enshrine a much wider right to sue builders over construction defects. With only a scattering of precincts reporting, the Rocky Mountain News reports it losing by a three-to-one margin, and although figures are bound to change as more precincts report, they are unlikely to hold out any hope for the measure's passage. For more on the initiative, see below.
