Anti-Tax Activist Douglas Bruce Hires David Lane


DENVER – Denver attorney David Lane will represent anti-tax activist Douglas Bruce in a contempt-of-court case, Tim Hoover from the Denver Post reports.

Bruce, who was pro se, is set to appear Aug. 18 in Denver District Court. The citation stems from a campaign-finance case trying to determine how three tax-slashing ballot initiatives – Amendments 60, 61 and Proposition 101 – were funded.

Among the high-profile cases Lane has been involved in include those of “Balloon Boy” father Richard Heene; Tim Masters, who won $10 million in settlements after being wrongly imprisoned for a decade, and former University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill.
