Is The Claim Baseless?

Under Colorado law, an exaggerated claim  is a claim that lacks “substantial justification” and is found to be “frivolous, groundless, or vexatious.” If an individual incurs attorney fees defending a claim that the Court finds to exaggerated, the Court may order the filing party to pay such attorney fees. (See Colorado Revised Statuts § 13-17-102.)

Is a claim exaggerated and/or baseless?

  • Frivolous action presents no evidence of a rational claim that is based in law.
  • Groundless accusations have no credible evidence to show.
  • Vexatious means to bring in bad faith, to annoy, or harass the other party.
