A few glitches in the financial disclosures by Colorado’s Supreme Court justices

The Denver Gazette: Colorado’s seven Supreme Court justices have largely complied with state laws requiring them to annually disclose their financial holdings and that of their spouses and family.

But a Denver Gazette review of those filings going back several years — financial disclosures, honoraria and gifts they received, and any outside employment they have — found a few areas that either bare a flaw in the reporting system or expose areas where some say the justices could have done better in their transparency.

They include at least one missing annual filing with the Colorado secretary of state’s office, not regularly identifying the name of a spouse — seen by many as likely the strongest possible conflict of interest — and taking part in cases in which they had a tangential connection with one of the parties, the review found.
