Lawmakers give bill to reform Colorado’s secretive judicial discipline system a ‘significant overhaul’

The Denver Post: Colorado lawmakers advanced a bipartisan bill aimed at reforming the state’s system for disciplining judges Thursday evening after making numerous changes to the original proposal.

The revised version of SB22-201 passed out of the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously after the bill’s sponsors in the Senate said the three major players in the effort — the Colorado Judicial Department, the Colorado Commission on Judicial Discipline, and the lawmakers — were able to work together to reach a consensus.

The committee heard hours of testimony about the bill’s original language last week, then delayed action until various concerns could be addressed.
