Colorado Code of Judicial Conduct. Rule 1.1

May 20, 2021

Rule 1.1. Compliance with the Law


(C) Every judge subject to the Code of Judicial Conduct, upon being convicted of a crime, except misdemeanor traffic offenses or traffic ordinance violations not including the use of alcohol or drugs, shall notify the appropriate authority* in writing of such conviction within ten days after the date of the conviction. In addition, the clerk of any court in this state in which the conviction was entered shall transmit to the appropriate authority within ten days after the date of the conviction a certificate thereof. This obligation to self-report convictions is a parallel but independent obligation of judges admitted to the Colorado bar to report the same conduct to the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel pursuant to C.R.C.P. 242.11.

Amended and Adopted by the Court, En Banc, May 20, 2021, effective July 1, 2021.
