Panel meets to recommend Mullarkey replacement
DENVER — The process to name a replacement for the outgoing chief justice of the Colorado Supreme Court is getting under way.
A nominating commission is set to meet today to review applications for those who want to fill the spot being vacated by Mary J. Mullarkey. She announced in June that should would retire at the end of November.
The commission will also meet twice next week before recommending three possible replacements to Gov. Bill Ritter. Ritter will have 15 days to make a decision after getting those names.
Mullarkey will chair the nominating commission but doesn’t get to vote on the candidates.
