Judge R. Brooke Jackson Confirmed to U.S. District Court for Colorado

On Tuesday, August 2, 2011, the United States Senate confirmed Jefferson County District Court Chief Judge R. Brooke Jackson as the final federal judge for the United States District Court for Colorado. Jackson will fill the second of two vacancies that have been open on the court since 2008. Judge Martinez was confirmed to the court last year.

Jackson has been a judge in the First Judicial District, which serves Jefferson and Gilpin counties, since 1998, and assumed the role of chief judge in 2003. He was first recommended for the United States District Court judgeship by Senators Mark Udall​ and Michael Bennet in 2009; President Obama nominated him in 2010, and renominated him in January when the new congress convened.
