Colorado Supreme Court hears call for transparency in attorney discipline process

The Denver Post: Members of the public pressed the Colorado Supreme Court for increased transparency in the attorney discipline process Wednesday as the judiciary faces allegations that top officials tried to cover up misconduct by judges.

The public hearing allowed anyone to give the justices feedback on numerous proposed changes to the attorney discipline process in Colorado, which is managed by the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.

That agency received about 3,400 complaints in 2019, according to its annual report, and 276 of those complaints were referred out of the agency’s intake division for further investigation. In 2019, the agency took disciplinary action against attorneys 165 times, including 14 disbarments and 35 suspensions, according to the report.
