Judge James F. Hartmann, corrupt Weld County Judge’s 2012 shutdown of weldcountycorruption.com in violation of 1st Amendment.
Judge James F. Hartmann,, according to Dynadot Web Hosting sources, the Weld County District Court Chief Judge whom had presided over the civil wage claim: Buckley v. Dream Stone, Inc. et.al. is credited with shutting down two websites maintained by former civil Plaintiff, and now felony victim, Craig D. Buckley,
Buckley had initiated the websites, weldcountycorruption.com and corruptkenbuck.com in response to Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann, and (then Weld County DA) Congressman Ken Buck’s concealment, aiding, and abetting of multiple criminal acts committed by the Defendants in the above civil matter.
The civil Defendants, Buckley’s former employers, had falsely sworn before the Weld County District Court that it did not have jurisdiction over the Plaintiff’s (Buckley’s) wage claim, because the matter was before the Colorado Division of Labor. Judge James F. Hartmann,, illegally stripped Buckley of his Due Process right, and access to all evidence to prosecute his wage claim, one day before he had been scheduled for deposition,, in violation of C.R.S. 8-4-110(2),
Buckley had been forced to sue for his accrued wages due on termination of employment, The employers swore that Buckley was not entitled to an award of accrued wages, because he had worked for the company for less than one year (company policy). Buckley is known to be in possession of 2 1/2 years of continuous, uninterrupted pay stubs.
Despite repeated attempts to subpoena his timecards. Buckley would later discover that Congressman (then Weld County DA) Ken Buck had authorized the destruction of the “at issue” timecard evidence.
Hartmann had fraudulently, and in defiance of Statutory authority, claimed that because Buckley’s wage claim, “was, or appeared to be before the Division of Labor” the Weld County District Court had, “no jurisdiction over the DOL” and Buckley’s wage claim was dismissed.
The Defendants had refused to participate in a Rule 16 conference to meet and confer regarding the nature of claims and defenses in the case. Judge James Hartmann, in total disregard for the Due Process Rights of the pro-se Plaintiff, had condoned, “trial by ambush”.
Under that provision of the Colorado Wage Act, , § 8-4-110(2) provides that “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.”
Evidence obtained from Colorado Dept. of Labor & Employment Director Ellen Golombek would later prove that the former employers had simultaneously sworn to the CDLE that it did not have jurisdiction, because Buckley’s wage claim was before the Court.
Colorado House Representative Jonathan Singer, the lawmaker responsible for the 2014 revisions to the Colorado Wage Act, has since agreed in a 22 minute recorded interview that the Court had no lawful right to enter the ruling stripping Buckley of his right to prosecute his case.
The Court, and more specifically Judge James F. Hartmann, was now in violation of the law, aiding and abetting the defendant’s fraud upon the Court, Buckley demanded proof of the Court’s continuing subject matter Jurisdiction due to the Judge’s issuance of orders which did not comply with Statutory authority, and specifically, violation of the provisions set forth in the Colorado Wage Act .
The challenge to the Court’s continuing subject matter jurisdiction was summarily ignored by Judge James F. Hartmann. Hartmann refused to enter proof of continuing SMJ on the record of the Court.
James Hartmann perceived he had dismissed Buckley’s lawsuit July 22, 2010 with prejudice, awarding costs and attorneys’ fees in excess of $20,000.00 to the Defendants. This, however, was not the case. Without proof of continuing jurisdiction on the record of the Court, as is required by law, Buckley refused to further submit to the jurisdiction of James F. Hartmann’s “sham” Court. James F. Hartmann’s Judgment was “Void” and “Mr.” Hartmann was no longer a “Judge”, but merely a minister of his own prejudices.
“Judge” James F. Hartmann illegally, and in criminal conspiracy with the civil Defendants encumbered Buckley’s home with numerous liens in support of his void civil judgment. On March 31, 2011, Longmont homeowner Craig Buckley received approximately 600 pages of evidentiary documents from Colorado Department of Labor & Employment Director Ellen Golombek. The documentary evidence obtained from CDLE Director Golombek proved that the civil Defendants had sworn simultaneously before both the Weld County District Court, and the Division of Labor, that neither had jurisdiction, because the matter was before the other: constituting Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant.
The documentary evidence of fraud, obtained from the record of the Court, and the Division of Labor, was immediately forwarded to Congressman (former Weld County DA) Ken Buck, Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, (Fmr.) Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, and the Chief Judge Of the Weld County District Court: James Francis Hartmann.
“Judge” James Hartmann and Weld County District Attorney Ken Buck panicked, never expecting this evidence to come to light, and IMMEDIATELY attacked. Buckley had sent several emails to the former employers, demanding the fraudulently obtained liens be removed from his property. Ken Buck lunged into action, immediately raiding Buckley’s home, and incarcerating him for “harassment” of the former employers. Buckley, a homeowner with stable employment and no significant priors, was held on a $20,000.00 bond for the single Class 3 Misdemeanor charge.
Sworn testimony by Buckley’s former employer on the morning of April 7, 2011 before Weld County Court Judge John Briggs, Dream Stone, Inc. Vice President Ron Murphy confessed to Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, Mail Fraud, Forgery, and Wage Theft, corroborating the evidence obtained from Ellen Golombek, and the record of the Court. Judge James Hartmann immediately initiated his malicious campaign to conceal, aid, and abet the employers’ multiple felonies.
Judge John Briggs, in violation of Judicial Canon, and Rules of Professional Conduct, refused to do anything, instead telling Buckley to, “Go tell it to the District Attorney”.
On April 7, 2011, Congressman Ken Buck, in the lobby of his Weld County Courthouse office, stood rocking back and forth menacingly on the heels of his cowboy boots told Buckley and his girlfriend, “You need to lose my email address, you need to lose my phone number, you need to just get over it and move on with your life. There is nobody in this office who will help you. You will never win”. Buckley observed, “It was chilling. I have never seen such a manifestation of pure Satanic evil”. Buckley was then escorted from the District Attorney’s Office by SEVEN Weld County Deputy Sheriff’s.
“That’s when I built the websites, I needed help, from the public, whoever [sic].”
“That is when the real attacks from these corrupt public officials began; including repeated home invasions, garnishment of wages, multiple arrests; whatever it took to conceal Judge James F. Hartmann and Congressman Ken Buck’s involvement in crime,” Buckley concluded.
As the attacks on Buckley by Judge James F. Hartmann Jr., and Congressman Ken Buck spun further, and further out of control, Buckley’s websites became increasingly vitriolic. At one point Judge James Hartmann was called a, “Sadistic Little Psychopath”.
On September 12, 2012 Buckley received email notification from San Mateo, CA based web hosting company Dynadot, LLC, stating that they would be canceling Buckley’s web hosting services for “libelous material”: specifically use of the term, “sadistic little psychopath“, as it pertained to Judge James F. Hartmann.
weldcountycorruption.com, and corruptkenbuck.com were removed from the Dynadot web servers on September 14, 2012. According to Dynadot policy, only the aggrieved party may make requests to have an offending site removed. On March 13, 2013, as the civil Defendants became more aggressive and wanted not only liens on Buckley’s home, but also garnishment of wages. Known criminal conspirator, Judge James F. Hartmann entered a sua-sponte Order with the Court, transferring Buckley’s case to another, subordinate Judge.
Handpicked by corrupt Judge Hartmann (Ret.) Weld County District Court Judge Daniel Maus continues malicious violation of Buckley’s rights.
“This case should have been moved from the District,” Buckley stated. “I don’t believe Judge James F. Hartmann had the right to handpick his own successor to do his bidding, since he was involved in the concealment of the Defendants’ Fraud Upon the Court.”
Judge James F. Hartmann’s Order stated as follows:
“It has come the attention of the undersigned judge that Mr. Buckley, after the complaint was dismissed and the case closed, placed information on a website expressing his displeasure with orders issued by the undersigned judge. Although the undersigned judge did not view this material directly, there were several people, including law enforcement personnel, who said they saw the information.”
Just one small problem…

The website Judge James F. Hartmann claims he never saw, and likely would claim did not enrage and infuriate him? It was pinged, and had multiple page views from Judge James F. Hartmann’s IP address at his home in Windsor, Colorado.
In a 180 degree about-face, corrupt Weld County District Court Judge James Hartmann issued this order on March 13, 2013: after Buckley had been arrested for Class 3 Misdemeanor harassment of his former employers, held on a $20,000.00 bond, and falsely convicted of ‘Harassment’ on perjured testimony and falsified evidence. Malice? You bet.
I have great respect for Mr. Buckley’s First Amendment right to free expression. Part of my job is to protect his, and others’ constitutional rights, and I take that responsibility seriously. I have no problem at all with him expressing his feelings of frustration and even anger at me or the legal system, whether those statements are made on his website or otherwise. Transparency of the judicial process is of paramount importance and an integral part of maintaining transparency is allowing people to voice their opinions, negative or positive, of judges and their decisions.
– Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann March 13, 2013 Order of the Weld County District Court.
Mere months later, Judge Daniel Maus, under the direction of “Judge” James F. Hartmann Jr. would illegally raid Buckley’s home because he had refused to give the deed to his house to his former employers, and raid it again ten days later, arresting Buckley for ‘Retaliation Against a Judge” for alleged “threatening” statements Buckley was purported to have made during the first illegal raid.
Hartmann, whom had claimed to have “great respect” for Mr. Buckley’s rights, would provably commit Felony Perjury, and utter forged/altered “evidence” to obtain Buckley’s conviction, this time, in 2014, for Class 4 Felony ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’.
“It’s just incomprehensible. The years, and years of lie after lie by this corrupt psychopath nutbag. It doesn’t matter how tiny or insignificant the detail, everything out of Judge James F. Hartmann’s mouth is a lie,” Buckley stated. “Hartmann is just a degenerate psychopath:, a pathological liar, incapable of telling the truth as it pertains to any detail, no matter how seemingly insignificant.”
