Judge Seth Hoyt’s ruling on Thursday morning came after he reviewed a motion to reconsider dismissing the case. Boone’s attorney, Patrick Smalling, filed the motion March 10 based on the judge’s denial of a motion to dismiss the case Feb. 1.
Smalling’s new motion cited a United States Supreme Court case decision on March 6. The Supreme Court reversed a ruling by the Colorado Superior Court regarding barring jurors from testifying about statements they made during deliberations, relying on the federal no-impeachment rule.
