Ritter makes appointment to Colo. Supreme Court

DENVER — Colorado Deputy Attorney General Monica Marie Marquez has been appointed to the state supreme court.

Gov. Bill Ritter announced the appointment Wednesday of the 41-year-old Marquez to replace Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey, who is retiring after 23 years on the bench.

Marquez’ appointment to the seven-member court is effective Nov. 30. She leads the State Services Section of the attorney general’s office, which represents nine of Colorado’s executive branch agencies in Colorado.

Marquez has represented the state, in both state and federal appellate courts.

She graduated from Grand Junction High School in 1987. She earned her bachelor’s degree from Stanford University and her law degree from Yale Law School.
