Contributing Mask for the Benefit of Denver Hospice is Equivalent to Fundraising

The Colorado Judicial Ethics Advisory Board issued Opinion 2013-04 on August 19, 2013.

The requesting judge was asked to contribute a handcrafted mask to The Mask Project, an annual fundraiser for Denver Hospice. Masks are created by artists, celebrities, sports figures, and community leaders, and an online auction identifies each mask’s creator. The judge’s mask would identify her as a judge, but she noted that she would not solicit contributions or bids. The judge wanted an opinion regarding whether contributing a mask to The Mask Project would violate Rule 3.7 of the Code of Judicial Conduct.

The Judicial Ethics Advisory Board opined that contributing the mask would indeed violate Rule 3.7, as it is the equivalent of fundraising or soliciting contributions for Denver Hospice. The Board noted that the clear language of Rule 3.7(A)(2) and (4) prohibits both active and passive fundraising for a non-law-related non-profit organization. Although the Board noted that the line between permissible and disallowed may not always be clear, it opined that there is no such uncertainty in this instance.

Civil Access Pilot Project Extended One Year by Chief Justice Directive

The Colorado State Judicial Branch released amended CJD 11-02 regarding the Colorado Civil Access Pilot Project in July 2013. The amendments to the CJD extend the pilot project for one year in order to provide additional data for the court to evaluate. Extending the pilot project will give the court more time to determine if the pilot project achieved its stated goals, and to decide whether changes to the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure are indicated.

Currently, the Civil Access Pilot Project applies only to certain cases in the First, Second, Seventeenth, and Eighteenth Judicial Districts. The pilot project applies to business cases, including breach of contract, business torts, actions governed by the Uniform Commercial Code, commercial transactions with banks, actions involving commercial real property, private actions for securities fraud, and products liability actions, among others.

The pilot project began January 1, 2012, and is currently slated to apply to all cases filed on or before December 31, 2014. The effects of the pilot project will be studied by IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System.
