The Superior Court found that because Lindemann was not personally harmed by the Commission's decision, the law does not allow him to appeal the Commission's decision to the courts. The Law Court has upheld that finding.
Lindemann's initial complaint to the Commission was that MHPC is a PAC and should be required to file PAC reports. The Commission found that MHPC was not a PAC, but was required to file a more limited 1056-B report rergarding their efforts related to the 2006 TABOR referundum. MHPC filed its 1056-B report in January 2007. Lindemann appealed the Commission's decision and that appeal is now complete and unsuccessful.
Lindemann filed a second complaint with the Commission that MHPC's 1056-B filing was inaccurate and/or incomplete. That matter has been tabled while the court's dealt with his appeal. The Commission will now consider the second complaint. If he does not agree with the Commission's decision, based on the Law Court's decision today, he will not be able to appeal the decision to court.
