A member of the Denver city council withdrew his involvement in a development project in September after being accused of "unlawfully" interfering in that project by the developer.

An Aug. 29 complaint filed by the developer's attorneys at Overturf McGath & Hull P.C. accused Rafael Espinoza, who represents district one in Denver, of interfering in a 47-unit residential development at 4390 Tennyson St.

The complaint alleged that Espinoza sent an email to Michael Mathieson, a member of the development company, which goes by the name 4390 Tennyson Street LLC, stating that Espinoza would personally review the approved permit drawings for the project.

The city had 90 days from the date of the letter to investigate what had occurred, but a Sept. 13 letter from the city attorney's office indicates that Espinoza withdrew his involvement, effectively putting an end to the matter.
