Today the Colorado Supreme Court issued an order in Clean Energy Collective LLC v. Borrego Solar Systems, Inc., 394 P.3d 1114 (Colo. 2017), reversing the district court’s holding that Borrego was subject to general jurisdiction in Colorado. Jeff Faucette represents Borrego and its subsidiary 1115 Solar Development LLC in this matter. Borrego and 1115 Solar were sued by Clean Energy Collective for breach of contract and other claims. Borrego and 1115 Solar filed a motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction. The trial court held that Borrego was subject to general jurisdiction in Colorado and that CEC could conduct discovery to see if Borrego’s contacts could be imputed to 1115 Solar. Jeff and local counsel Ty Gee at Haddon, Morgan and Foreman, filed an original proceeding in the Supreme Court pursuant to Colorado Appellate Rule 21 on the ground that the trial court had exceeded its jurisdiction.
