Boulder land grab upheld

Last week, in Boulder, Colorado, District Judge James Klein reaffirmed his earlier ruling handing former colleague, Richard McLean, one-third of a neighbor's parcel of land for free.

The case so outraged residents of Colorado that the law under which the land-grab took place has already been superseded by new legislation. A separate legal change would prevent judges like Klein from presiding in cases involving former colleagues.

But the Kirlins, whose land was stolen by McLean and his wife Edith Stevens, have to pursue their rights under the old law. They vow to appeal.
