The article wasn’t too clear, so I’m a little fuzzy on the details. Do you know if he has a Washington permit, but is suing Colorado because they won’t honor it? Or, since they won’t honor a Washington permit, is he suing Colorado because they won’t issue him a Colorado permit?

I think that maybe he is suing the wrong state. Looking at the Arizona Dept of Public Safety, I see that Colorado reciprocates with Arizona on on concealed carry. However Washington does NOT. My guess is Colorado, like Arizona will reciprocates with states that honor their permits.
In this case the real villain is Washington and in my opinion the court should throw out his suit. With prejudice.
