Judicial Discipline Commissions says Supreme Court lied, misled, misinformed public during probe

The Denver Gazette: On July 29, 2021, the chief justice of Colorado’s Supreme Court quietly met in a Denver parking garage with the executive director of the state’s Commission on Judicial Discipline to discuss the latter’s press for information in its inquiry into misconduct allegations tied to an alleged contract-for-silence scheme at the Judicial Department.

During the rendezvous, Chief Justice Brian Boatright told the commission’s then-Executive Director William Campbell that he wanted the discipline panel “to have all the info (it was) seeking” in its investigation, but that Boatright “doesn’t want to give it easily.”

That rendezvous was detailed in a filing the commission made early Monday with a state legislative committee exploring changes to the state’s method of disciplining judges.
