Certiorari to the Colorado Court of Appeals, 02CA1831
Docketed: December 12, 2005
At Issue: January 22, 2007


ISSUE(S):

Whether section 16-8-107(3)(b), C.R.S. (2005), which requires notice and a court-ordered
examination before a defendant may introduce expert opinion evidence concerning his or her
mental condition, applies regardless of the purpose for which the evidence is admitted.

Whether the court of appeals incorrectly held that section 16-8-107(3)(b), only applies when a
defendant offers expert opinion evidence concerning his mental condition as a defense or to
show a lack of a required mens rea, although the statute contains no such limiting provision.

If the trial court erred in preventing the respondent from presenting evidence of his mental
condition, was such error harmless.

ISSUE(S):

Whether the court of appeals erred by concluding that the Local Government Land Use Control
Enabling Act, § 29-20-101, et seq., C.R.S., supersedes § 30-28-121, C.R.S., of the County
Planning and Building Codes, thereby allowing the imposition of a temporary moratorium
without a stated termination date that precludes all development activities while a Board of
County Commissioners adopts resolutions for the master planning and rezoning of property that
has already been zoned.
