Justice-Designee Marquez Scouts Capitol For Swearing-In

Editor’s Note: Since this post, the Colorado Judicial Branch has confirmed that Marquez’s investiture will be on Friday, Dec. 10, in the old Supreme Court chambers.

STATE BILL COLORADO

Colorado Supreme Court Justice-To-Be Monica Marquez recently visited the Old Supreme Court chambers in Colorado’s capitol as a possible site for her swearing-in.

Marquez may be considering an alternate venue because the high court currently hears cases in temporary space on the first floor of The Denver Post building, 101 W. Colfax. That temporary courtroom, while nice and functional, isn’t nearly as majestic as the old chambers, which was home to the court in the 1970s.

Gov. Bill Ritter appointed Marquez to succeed Mary Mullarkey, the court’s chief justice, following her retirement Nov. 30.

A courts spokesman wasn’t immediately available for comment.
