HB 13-1086: Changing Requirement for Record Preparation in Appeals to District Court

On January 16, 2013, Rep. Roger Wilson and Sen. Kevin Grantham introduced HB 13-1086 –  Concerning the Preparation of the Record in Appeals from County Court JudgmentsThis summary is published here courtesy of the Colorado Bar Association’s e-Legislative Report.

Under current law, in county court civil or criminal actions that are appealed to the district court, the record on appeal must be completed within 42 days after judgment. The bill revises the process to require the record to be completed within 42 days after the filing of notice of appeal rather than of the judgment. The completed record shall be certified by the clerk of the court, not by a county court judge. The bill applies to appeals from judgments entered on or after July 1, 2013.The CBA LPC voted to support this legislation. On Feb. 7, the House gave final approval of the bill; the bill is assigned to the Judiciary Committee in the Senate.

Since this summary, the Senate Judiciary Committee referred the bill unamended to the consent calendar for the Senate Committee of the Whole.
