The Denver Gazette: Colorado’s judicial branch will neither confirm nor deny whether it has any additional records on the allegation that a Court of Appeals judge negotiated an agreement with a law clerk to prevent the clerk from disclosing sexual harassment claims, citing a provision of its rules that requires confidentiality for all investigations it conducts into sexual harassment claims against judges.

Terri Morrison, the legal counsel for Colorado’s Judicial Department, denied a records request from The Gazette seeking details about the alleged release agreement, which was one of nearly two dozen misconduct allegations listed in a recent memo The Gazette and The Denver Post obtained.
