In concealment of criminal acts by his predecessor Stan Garnett: Boulder County Colorado District Attorney Michael Dougherty to be slapped with extensive CORA demand for evidence from the sham 2014 ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’ conviction of Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley.
Boulder, CO – In 2014, Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley was convicted of a single count of Class 4 Felony Retaliation Against a Judge as an outgrowth of a civil contempt warrant executed in 2013, in absence of jurisdiction, by the Weld County District Court.
Buckley, the Plaintiff in a civil wage claim case against his former employers, had refused to give Dream Stone, Inc., a now defunct countertop fabrication company, the deed to his home, and years of tax returns. Ten days after the civil contempt arrest, Longmont police raided Buckley’s home again, and he was arrested on the felony count for statements made during the first arrest which Boulder County DA Stan Garnett had purported to have been a “credible threat” against Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann.
In fear of retaliation by the Colorado Judiciary, Buckley’s attorney, Denver Colorado based criminal defense attorney Michael Root, refused to defend Buckley against what has proven to be perjured testimony and forged evidence by Judge James Hartmann. Buckley’s criminal case has been described by legal analysts as a, “jellyfish” of a case: wholly lacking in substance.
Judge James Hartmann, two years prior to the civil contempt raid on Buckley’s home, was proven in sworn testimony by the employers April 7, 2011, before Weld County Judge John Briggs, to be Accessory After the Fact to Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, Fraud Upon the Court, and Theft by Buckley’s employers.
Notwithstanding, Hartmann had surrendered jurisdiction of Buckley’s civil case on June 17, 2010, when he violated Buckley’s Civil Due Process rights under the Colorado Wage Act C.R.S. 8-4-101 et seq., and specifically, C.R.S. 8-4-110(2). Deprivation of Due Process deprives the Court of Jurisdiction. Challenges to Hartmann’s jurisdiction to enter rulings in contravention of Statutory authority were summarily ignored.
In sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court, Hartmann would commit First degree Perjury in support of forged Court documents to conceal his complicity in crime, and to exact revenge on Buckley for catching him in, and accusing him of CRIME. Boulder DA Stan Garnett would suborn that felony perjury
Following Buckley’s ‘sham’ conviction in 2014, he demanded corrupt former Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett produce documents and evidence supporting “Judge” James Hartman’s known-perjured testimony in support of his forged evidence. In violation of the Colorado Open Records Act, (CORA) C.R.S. § 24-72-201 to 206, on July 14, 2014, Garnett flatly refused.
As evidenced in numerous articles throughout this website, Stan Garnett’s Cc: recipient, “email@example.com” proves the Colorado Attorney General was criminally complicit in concealment, aiding, and abetting of Hartmann’s criminal acts.
Michael Dougherty was appointed by Governor John Hickenlooper in 2018 after Garnett abandoned the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office for a, “crazy to pass up” offer from his former employers: Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck.
Dougherty, whos tagline is, “Do justice”, and has been aware of the injustices in the Buckley ‘Retaliation’ case since 2018, claims to have initiated a Conviction integrity Unit in the Boulder DA’s Office.
Dougherty stated in a March 23, 2018 Boulder Daily Camera article, “A prosecutor’s mission is to do justice in every single case, and not to rack up convictions like notches in a gun belt,” he said. “If there is reason to believe someone is wrongfully convicted, prosecutors should have an open mind and a process to examine those cases.”
Dougherty should have added the qualification, “Except when the evidence exonerating a falsely convicted individual implicates a sitting Judge in commission of crime, then all bets are off”.
Thus far Dougherty has provably continued to act as Accessory to Crime, recently blocking Buckley’s Twitter account from the Boulder District Attorney’s Twitter feed, in violation of the First Amendment. While many of the criminal acts perpetrated to obtain Buckley’s conviction have passed the Statute of Limitations, Forgery has not.
Buckley stated, “The biggest hinderance to seeking justice has been my humiliation of being regarded as a felon. I’m through with that, these people have wrongfully destroyed my life. I will plaster the evidence, my name, and the names of the corrupt government officials who did this EVERYWHERE. I’m done being a victim, and this will never go away”.
The transcript of Judge James Hartmann’s perjured testimony has been meticulously examined, as well as the limited evidence in Buckley’s possession. In late June 2021, Buckley plans to serve an extensive CORA demand on Boulder County District Attorney Michael Dougherty.
Buckley concluded, “I have very little faith in this process. The crimes, when proven, would mean the end of careers for numerous individuals in the Boulder County DA’s Office, including Catrina Weigel, Maggie Green, Chris Merkle, and other as yet undiscovered conspirators. There are people in the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, and sitting Judges, whom I will identify, who are also criminally complicit. The extent to which these people have gone to retaliate is unfathomable”.
Evidence indicates “Judge” James Hartmann is a felon, who should have been removed from the bench, disbarred, and incarcerated two years before the illegal civil contempt raid on Buckley’s home. Mr. Dougherty would be ill-advised to take former Boulder DA Stan Garnett’s July 15, 2014 position of, “Your requests and demands are rejected”. Will Boulder DA Michael Dougherty continue to act as Accessory After the Fact to Weld County Judge James Hartmann’s Wage Theft, Forgery, and Retaliation scam, or will he comply with the Colorado Open Records Act?
We shall see.
