Colorado voters to see constitutional amendment on judicial discipline reform in 2024

The Denver Gazette: Along with the next American president, Colorado voters in November 2024 will decide whether to change the state’s system of disciplining its judges, the culmination of a judiciary scandal that began nearly five years ago with revelations of an insider-deal contract.

The Colorado legislature on Monday formally approved the proposed amendment – House Concurrent Resolution 23-1001 – in which the current 56-year-old method of judicial discipline would be shelved for one of greater transparency and accountability.

The body also approved a companion measure, House Bill 23-1019, which sets out in law the procedures by which the new judicial discipline system will work. The bill is moot should voters not pass the amendment.
