James F. Hartmann – Colorado 19th Judicial District “Judge” in illegal defiance of Colorado Wage Act Law, Rules of Civil Procedure, FLSA, and Due Process Rights to conceal his staggering incompetence & corruption.

Greeley, CO – If there was ever clear evidence that prospective Judicial nominees should be required to submit to mental health evaluation prior to being appointed to the Bench, that proof would be “Judge” James F. Hartmann.

On  June 17, 2010,  19th Judicial District – Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann would enter Court Orders in the wage claim case, Buckley v. Dream Stone, Inc. et. al., which would change civil plaintiff and Longmont, CO homeowner, Craig Buckley’s life forever. Buckley was terminated, by constructive discharge, from his 26 month employment with Dream Stone, Inc., a countertop fabrication company where he had worked as a CNC programmer. The Industrial Claims Appeals Office had determined the employer was responsible for, “an abusive environment” and no reasonable person would work there. Buckley was owed money, and attempted to sue in the Weld County District Court.

Citing inapplicable Workers’ Compensation law, Stacks v. The Industrial Commission et. al. Buckley’s former employers, through their criminally complicit attorney Daniel T. Goodwin, had used a forged  May 7, 2010 response to motion for settlement conference to plead before the Weld County District Court that the issue of Buckley’s accrued wages was before the Colorado Division of Labor & Employment, and the Court, therefore, had no jurisdiction to hear the claim.

Judge Hartmann would use, “the Court’s” June 17, 2010 order re: discovery, to rule on the fraudulent and unsupported allegations made by the civil defendants in their May 7, 2010 response to motion for settlement conference. In violation of C.R.S. 8-4-101 et seq., and specifically, C.R.S. 8-4-110(2), Buckley  was stripped of all evidence, and the Due Process right to prosecute his accrued wage claim, mere hours before he had been commanded to appear for deposition.

Hartmann would later confess, on  October 1, 2013  to  Boulder County District Attorney’s Investigator Maggie Green, that Buckley was seeking an award of accrued wages before the Court. Hartmann would continue, knowingly making a  materially false statement, claiming that Buckley had pursued, “the issue” of accrued wages before the workman’s [sic] compensation administrative board. This would be one of many acts of perjury, obstruction, and forgery Hartmann would commit over a course of years, to conceal his involvement in crime.

10.01.2013-Boulder DA Investigator Maggie-Green-Investigation- Judge James Hartmann: Corrupt and incompetent. What the hell does Workers’ Comp have to do with accrued wages under the Colorado Wage Act?

“There is no way this illegal deprivation of Due Process rights could have been this flawlessly choreographed without Hartmann engaging in illegal ex-parte communications with the defendants’ attorney,” Buckley stated.

Colorado Workers’ Compensation has no authority or jurisdiction over claims for employee wages. Hartmann knew that, and purposefully  lied during the course of an official government investigation to conceal his involvement in fraud and criminal possession of a forged instrument. Hartmann knew at the time he uttered his perjured statement to Boulder County Investigator Maggie Green, that no such evidence of Buckley ever having sought an award of his accrued wages before the Workers’ Compensation Administrative Board exists or ever existed, or would have been possible under Colorado law.

There are several factors to analyze in the criminality of “Judge” James Hartmann’s acts. First, is the dismissal of Buckley’s case for him having refused to appear for deposition by, “an officer of the Court, whom had worked a fraud upon the Court”, as Buckley had pleaded.  If, in fact as Hartmann had admitted October 1, 2013, Buckley was, “only seeking compensation for his unused vacation”, and the Court had stripped him of that evidence hours before deposition, what then was the the purpose of said deposition? In addition to dismissing Buckley’s case, Hartmann awarded the defendants thousands of dollars in additional attorneys’ fees for Buckley’s refusal to appear for a deposition which was, by James Hartmann’s own admission, without purpose. This was nothing more than malice and revenge by a corrupt Judge.

Hartmann would state in his July 22, 2010 order dismissing Buckley’s case:

“In a separate action, Plaintiff filed a claim with the CDLE for vacation pay he believed he was owed.”

“In his response to the motion to dismiss, Plaintiff states that he believed it was pointless to appear at the deposition because rulings issued by this “sham” court gave Plaintiff the impression that proceeding with his case would be pointless. Plaintiff points to rulings issued by this court in which the court found that Plaintiff has a pending claim before the CDLE for unpaid vacation time, which was argued by Defendants in their response to Plaintiffs motion for a settlement conference.”

“Plaintiff did not file a reply to Defendant’s response to the motion for settlement conference; therefore, Defendant’s assertion that the vacation pay claim was still pending before the CDLE was not refuted.”

The defendants’ claims were not refuted, because, under the law as shown below, concurrent claims before the Court are perfectly legal.  Additionally, prior to the 2014 revisions to the Colorado Wage act, the Division of Labor had no authority to award penalties to the aggrieved employee. According to Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer, author of the 2014 revisions to the Wage Act, “prior to the 2014 revisions, the DOL had little more authority than to write a nasty letter to the employers, and that worked maybe half the time”.

Hartmann further failed to address the fact that Buckley had challenged the subject matter jurisdiction of the Court for violating Due Process rights, and refusal to comply with statutory authority. Hartmann refused to enter proof of continuing SMJ on the record of the Court. Hartmann’s “sham” orders were VOID.

We must  analyze the perversion of law used by “Judge” James Hartmann, in criminal conspiracy with defense attorney Daniel T. Goodwin, to deprive Buckley of his constitutional civil rights. The precedent cited by attorney Daniel T. Goodwin Stacks v. Industrial Commission was a scheme to work a fraud upon the Court. Hartmann, who has a vile distain for pro-se litigants, was only too happy to aid and abet.

The controlling statutory authority regarding a litigant’s (employee’s) right to seek wages due upon termination of employment is as follows:

Colorado Wage Act,  , § 8-4-110(2) Any person claiming to be aggrieved by violation of any provisions of this article or regulations prescribed pursuant to this article may file suit in any court having jurisdiction over the parties without regard to exhaustion of any administrative remedies.

The Court need not analyze this any further than the plain language of the law.

The controlling  authority at common law regarding a litigant’s (employee’s) right to seek wages due upon termination of employment is as follows:

Summers v. Texas de Brazil

See: Summer v. Texas de Brazil

See: Laurence v. State 910 P.2d 73 (Colo. App. 1995)

Stacks v. Industrial Commission pertains solely and specifically to Workers’ Compensation Law.

Buckley’s claim for accrued wages fell under Colorado Wage Act law.

Dream Stone, Inc., having annual sales in excess of $500,000, and engaged in interstate commerce, with contracts in Nevada, and Nebraska made Hartmann, and other offending Weld County Officials, accessories to criminal violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act , and subject to Federal prosecution under 29 U.S.C. § 216.

“There is no way this illegal deprivation of Due Process rights could have been this flawlessly choreographed without Hartmann engaging in illegal ex-parte communications with the defendants’ attorney,” Buckley stated.

After posting information about Hartmann’s criminal complicity on this website, and Hartmann shutting it down,  he would continue his harassment of Buckley, assigning subordinate Judges Daniel Maus, and Todd Taylor to continue  deprivation of rights and retaliation.

Two years prior to Judge Daniel Maus initiating an illegal raid on Buckley’s home, and arresting him on a civil contempt warrant for refusing to give his tax returns and the deed to his house to his former employers, Weld County authorities, including Judge James Hartmann, Congressman (then Weld DA) Ken Buck, District Attorney (then Chief Deputy DA) Michael Rourke, and Chief Investigator Keith Olson, were known to be in possession of evidence proving the employers and their criminally complicit attorney Daniel T. Goodwin, had sworn simultaneously before both the Weld County District Court, and the Colorado Division of Labor, that neither had jurisdiction over Buckley’s wage claim, because the matter was before the other. All are implicated as accessories after the fact to multiple felonies. This matter would be pleaded numerous times before criminally complicit Judge Todd Taylor, to no avail. “Judge” Todd Taylor’s criminal acts, and outrageous rulings are the subjects of other articles on this website.

Ten days after the raid and Buckley’s  incarceration for refusing to give the deed to his house to his former employers,  government authorities would raid Buckley’s home again, and incarcerate him for an alleged “threat” made to “Judge” James Hartmann during the first illegal raid.

So what of “Judge” James Hartmann’s utter contempt for the law, and the rights of the pro-se plaintiff?  “Judge” James Hartmann would make a revealing if not sinister admission in sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court on April 21, 2014:

“Sometimes, but I wouldn’t characterize it as giving a break to a person. If someone files the motion and they have the incorrect statute, I’ll look past that.” – James F. Hartmann

Craig Buckley concluded, “This doesn’t take leap of faith of to conclude Hartmann’s acts, and the acts of his criminal conspirators in Weld County, were pure malice. This is not ignorance of the law, or incompetence. I’ve seen incompetent, stupid Judges: Hartmann is not one of them. I’ve had years to analyze his sadistic, psychopathic behavior: this is a very dangerous, vengeful man. He had no right to strip me of my due Process rights, and neither he, nor any of his goons had any business on my property after he surrendered subject matter jurisdiction in my case. His rulings were void for refusing to comply with statutory authority.”

James Hartmann and other Weld and Boulder County officials, are proven to be working in criminal conspiracy with the Colorado Attorney’s General’s Office, who are known to have initiated a campaign of revenge for a successful  lawsuit against The State of Colorado which Buckley had settled mere months before.
