Results of fraud audit into Colorado judicial misconduct memo may never become public

The Denver Gazette: The Colorado Supreme Court this week handed over for investigation to the Colorado State Auditor’s Office a memo detailing nearly two dozen instances of judicial and administrator misconduct at the heart of an alleged $2.72 million hush money contract scandal, but the public may never get a chance to find out what the Auditor’s Office concludes.

Fraud audits conducted by the State Auditor’s Office are confidential under state law. Colorado State Auditor Dianne Ray confirmed that in accordance with the law governing fraud audits, her office will deliver the final findings to the state’s Judicial Department and not to the public.

She said it was up to the Judicial Department whether it would make the findings public.
