Judge considering sanctions against Bruce

DENVER — A judge has ordered anti-tax activist Douglas Bruce to show why he shouldn’t be held in contempt of court for ignoring a subpoena.

Denver District Court Judge Brian Whitney ruled today that there is evidence that Bruce flouted the law and he ordered Bruce to show up July 26 for a hearing.

It will now be up to the clerk of the court to find Bruce and serve him with the new orders. Authorities said they tried 30 times before and couldn’t find him.

Bruce didn’t return a phone call seeking comment.

State officials wanted Bruce to testify in an administrative case looking into who’s financing three measures on the November state ballot. The initiatives would limit the ability of local and state governments to borrow and spend money.
