Court of Appeals: Retain Judge Laurie A. Booras

Court of Appeals — Laurie A. Booras

Retain

Do not retain

Gov. Bill Ritter appointed Judge Laurie A. Booras in 2009 after she worked for eight years as first assistant attorney general for the state. She is or has been a member of multiple committees on sentencing reform and rules of criminal procedure.

Booras’ Colorado Office of Judicial Performance Evaluation survey results indicate she’s fair, respectful, clear, impartial and thoughtful in the eyes of attorneys who present before her. The judge is “working hard to continue her development” in areas of the law other than criminal practice.

For Booras and other relatively recent appointees, there’s no reason to oppose retention. Why remove a judge with very little track record to consider? The Clerk of the Court of Appeals estimates judges hear 240 cases a year and write about 80 opinions — most of which aren’t published because they aren’t groundbreaking. The result is there isn’t a lot of material to judge Booras by.

The major flaw Booras displays is that she’s new to the bench. So why replace her with someone even newer?
