DENVER (AP) A lawsuit challenging the petition-gathering process that got a $950 million school-tax proposal on the November ballot has been filed.

Members of Coloradans for Real Education Reform filed the suit in Denver District Court on Wednesday claiming that nearly 40,000 of the signatures gathered for the ballot measure are invalid.

According to the Denver Post, if the lawsuit succeeds, supporters of the tax measure would not have enough signatures and the measure could be invalidated.
