Boulder teens score legal victory against oil and gas industry
BOULDER, Colo. -- A group of Boulder teenagers is taking on the oil and gas industry head-on. Most arguments against fracking have been shut down in the courts. But this effort -- spearheaded by 16-year-old Xiuhtezcatl Martinez -- is gaining steam. In February, Martinez led an anti-fracking rally on the steps of the State Capitol the day before his lawsuit to ban fracking was heard at the Colorado Court of Appeals.
