Clean Up the Courts - Update

Monday the Colorado Supreme Court rejected a proposed initiative intended for the November 2014 ballot that would amend the state constitution to allow voter recall of judges. In a split decision, they held that it violated the single subject rule. The two other proposed ballot initiatives aimed at courts and judges are still alive. Sponsored by ‘Clean Up the Courts,’ one initiative (the Two-Thirds Majority Initiative) would require judges standing for retention to receive two-thirds, rather than majority, support from voters, while the Ethics (or Honest Judge) Initiative would transfer authority to discipline judges to the state’s independent ethics commission and introduce “much needed accountability and transparency” to the judicial discipline process.
