A University of Colorado Boulder Law School professor has been selected to serve on the Colorado Supreme Court.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper announced today he has picked Melissa Hart to fill the position vacated by Allison Eid Nov. 3. Eid in November left to join the Denver-based federal 10th Circuit Court of Appeals after her predecessor, Neil Gorsuch, was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"I'm very honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to serve Colorado in this capacity," Hart said. "I will be devoted to the rule of law and to treating all parties fairly, in every case. I will do my best to make sure our court system is efficient and fair, and that the work it does is clear and transparent."
Hart was one of three finalists named Nov. 29. The other two were Marcy Glenn of Denver and Judge Pattie P. Swift of Alamosa.
