Search for Next Colorado Supreme Court Justice Narrowed to Three Candidates

Ever since Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey announced her retirement, there has been no shortage of speculation about who might take her seat on the court.

But after interviewing 31 possible candidates in two days, the Supreme Court Nominating Commission has offered up three candidates to Governor Ritter. Ritter now has two weeks to make an appointment. The individual selected will be up for a retention election in two years.

Who are the final three?

Monica Marquez, Deputy Colorado Attorney General
David Prince, Fourth Judicial District Judge
Robert Russel, Colorado Court of Appeals Judge
