Brauchler: Colorado’s judges need more oversight and occasional ouster

The Denver Post: This week, the Colorado Commission of Judicial discipline made the unprecedented decision to ask the Colorado General Assembly to give it complete autonomy from the Colorado Judicial Branch it is charged with investigating.

This seems so obvious, it is difficult to imagine why it has not been the case until now. In fact, it is such common sense that the Colorado Supreme Court echoed the request for investigative autonomy from itself. I cheer on this change, despite how long overdue it is. More is needed.

While Colorado looks under the judicial hood at needed reform, here are some others this legislature can work on right now. Disclaimer: every judge in front of who I will appear or have ever appeared are the hardest-working, smartest, funniest, most attractive jurists in Colorado.
