Law groups are united that judicial discipline process needs greater transparency

The Denver Gazette: A half dozen professional groups tied to the legal profession each recommended to a state legislative committee Wednesday that Colorado’s current judicial discipline system should be more robust, transparent and accountable to the public.

Among the groups are the Colorado Women’s Bar Association, the Institute for Advancement of the American Legal System at the University of Denver and the El Paso County Bar Association.

Although the groups differed somewhat on the details, each was uniform in claiming that Colorado’s system is too secret and should allow more information about a judge’s misconduct to be disclosed publicly, especially if disciplinary charges are filed.
