Mandatory E-Filing in Domestic Relations Cases in Denver Starts January 1, 2013

The Honorable Robert S. Hyatt, Chief Judge of the Second Judicial District, issued an order mandating e-filing for all district court domestic relations cases in the Second Judicial District, effective January 1, 2013. Parties filing domestic relations cases must e-file through State Judicial’s new ICCES filing system. Mandatory e-filing of civil cases in the Denver District Court has been effective since December 1, 2010.

Pro se litigants will continue to file in paper through the clerk’s office, since they do not have access to ICCES. The clerk will scan and e-file documents for pro se litigants at no charge. Attorneys who file in paper will be charged $50 per document to have the documents scanned and e-filed by the court. If a document is e-filed using any status other than “Public,” the submitting attorney must state specific authority for limiting access to the document.

Governor Hickenlooper Appoints Beth Lieberman to Fourth Judicial District Nominating Commission

On Monday, November 26, 2012, Governor Hickenlooper announced his appointment of Beth Lieberman of Colorado Springs to the Fourth Judicial District Nominating Commission. She will serve as a Democrat and a non-attorney from El Paso County.

Each judicial district has a nominating commission comprised of three attorneys and four non-attorneys. No more than half of the members plus one may have the same political affiliation, and applicants must reside in the judicial district for which they seek appointment. Those who serve on the nominating commission do so as volunteers.

Ms. Lieberman’s appointment was occasioned by the retirement of Kenneth Valdez of Colorado Springs, and her term will expire December 31, 2017.
