State judicial discipline panel seeks information on more than 120 judges

The Denver Gazette: Colorado’s Commission on Judicial Discipline is compiling “in-depth” information on more than 120 judges who The Denver Gazette recently revealed had not filed personal financial disclosure reports to the state this year despite a law requiring it, according to emails obtained by the newspaper.

More than two dozen of the judges haven’t had a disclosure on file as mandated with the Colorado Secretary of State’s office in several years, and dozens more senior judges haven’t done so either, some for more than a decade, The Denver Gazette investigation found.

The Denver Gazette found that about one in every six of the state’s full-time judges did not have the disclosures on file this year. Senior judges instead have been filing the disclosures with the Judicial Department as part of a contract they sign to remain on the bench in a limited manner, the investigation found.
