Colorado Springs group sues to allow vote on fracking ban

Dave Gardner and about 20 other protesters speak out against fracking for oil and gas outside City Hall in downtown Colorado Springs Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2012, before the city council meeting. The rally was sponsored by the Colorado Springs Citizens for Community Rights, a group formed to promote clean air, water and soil. The group is fighting to circulate a petition to ban oil and gas drilling in the city. (AP Photo/The Gazette, Christian Murdock)
