Colorado: State Senator Giron recall gets its signatures validated -- will the 6% invalidation rate lead to lawsuit?

Very interesting result as the signatures in the recall against State Senator Angela Giron were verified. Unlike the Morse recall, which saw a 37.5% invalidation rate, the Giron recall saw a very high approval rate --- 13,466 were turned in and 818 were invalidated (6%). Petitioners needed 11,285 (got 12,648). 
Six percent is a very low rate historically, especially when you consider other recalls in Colorado. Due to the extreme difference in invalidation rates (which could be explained by several different perfect reasonable answers), a Giron protest would probably be extremely different from a protest by Morse (which seems to be very technical in nature).
