From The Pueblo Chieftain (Robert Boczkiewicz):

In a petition for rehearing, Thiebaut’s attorneys listed several reasons why he thought the decision was wrong. Judges of the Denver-based appeals court were not persuaded and last week denied the petition. In accord with their standard practice, they gave no reason in their three-sentence order. Thiebaut wanted to have October’s decision overturned on rehearing so he could revive a 2005 lawsuit he filed against Colorado Springs. It alleged the city violated the Clean Water Act numerous times from at least 1998 by discharging raw sewage, nonpotable water and excessive chlorine into the creek.
