Colorado makes conduct criminal if anyone, including a lawyer, “renders assistance” by helping a person “conceal, destroy or alter any physical evidence that might aid in the . . . prosecution . . . of such person.” C.R.S. § 18-8-105(2)(e).
Boulder, CO – So, what does this mean to Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann? Absolutely nothing, especially in perjured sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court. James Hartmann would commit Felony Perjury to conceal the fact that he had destroyed evidence to conceal his complicity in crime.
On June 17, 2010 in a fraudulent Order Re: Discovery, Judge James Hartmann had illegally stripped Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley of all evidence and the civil Due Process right to seek an award of accrued wages and penalties due on termination of employment from his former employers. This article about The Honorable Judge Norman D. Haglund explains Hartmann’s violation of statutory authority under the Colorado Wage Act, and specifically C.R.S. 8-4-110(2).
In April, 2014, Longmont,CO homeowner Craig Buckley was on trial for, “Retaliation Against a Judge” for an alleged, “credible threat” statement he was purported to have made against Hartmann during a July 2013 illegal raid on his home by the Weld County District Court. Buckley, whom had refused to submit to the jurisdiction of James Hartmann’s, “sham Court”, was under attack because he refused to give the deed to his home, and years of tax returns to his former employers in support of over $20,000.00 in liens obtained by the civil defendants. Buckley had caught Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann acting as Accessory to multiple felonies, and Hartmann knew it.
At issue in the criminal case: on April 4, 2011, Craig Buckley allegedly struck, “fear” into the heart of Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann with a terrifying, “letter”. The Court transcript of Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s perjured testimony on April 21, 2014 would reveal that Buckley had “sent”, or, “brought” him a, “letter”, April 4, 2011, depending on which subornation of perjury by Boulder County DA Chief Prosecutor Catrina Weigel you choose to believe.
Buckley stated, “Hartmann was, ‘in fear’, alright. Not of me, but because he got CAUGHT! Now he wanted revenge.”
Having sworn that the, “letter” was a true, complete, and accurate representation of what Buckley had sent him on April 4, 2011, Hartmann would admit he had entered the forged document into the record of the Weld County District Court, and testify as follows before the Boulder County District Court on April 21, 2014:
Exhibit 7 reads: “Hartmann, you need to fix
this” — words “fix this” are underlined — “and get the
lien off my house right now! Buckley, 09CV991.” And then
it has the date stamps that were put on there when it was
What Buckley had actually sent Hartmann, April 4, 2011, was a multi-page document; an evidence pack obtained from former Colorado Division of Labor Director Ellen Golombek proving Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant. This was purposefully sent to James Hartmann in his personal capacity to invoke his obligation under C.R.S. § 18-8-306 C.R.P.C. Rule 8.4, Judicial Canon and Colo. R. Civ. P. 251.4 . Hartmann had surrendered jurisdiction of Buckley’s case in 2011, for violation of Due Process rights under the Colorado Wage Act, for acting as Accessory to theft by forged affidavit of attorneys’ fees, for Accessory to Wage Theft and Accessory to F4 Attempt to Influence a Public Servant. Buckley would not deal with the “Court”, or so-called “Judge” James Hartmann in his official capacity. Hartmann would commit First Degree Felony Perjury on April 21, 2014 to conceal the existence of those documents:
By Prosecutor Catrina Weigel:
Q Just to kind of summarize, on April 4, 2011, did
you get a handwritten letter from Mr. Buckley on that day?
A I did. It was on a smaller piece of paper and
written with what appeared to be a Sharpie marker and
written to me and signed by Mr. Buckley.
Q Okay, so let’s kind of — generally, are all of
the items that I handed you, are those documents contained
in the court file for the civil lawsuit we have been talking
about, case number 2009CV991?
A Yes, they are.
Q Is what I handed you true and accurate copies of
those documents in that file?
A They appear to be.
By Defense Attorney Michael Root:
Q You were kind enough to meet with my investigator
and myself up in your office in Greeley?
A That’s correct.
Q You showed us a copy of a note that was similar to
A The note that I have in the file?
Q And if I recall correctly, the note that you
showed us didn’t have that bottom part on it about the lien
on the house. Maybe my memory is just faulty.
A No. This is accurate. Would you like to see the
Q No, if you say that’s what it is. So that was
accurately what was put in there?
MR. ROOT: For purposes of admission, Judge, I
don’t have any objection to the admission of those
Defense attorney Michael Root had suborned First Degree Perjury from the prosecutions’ witness!
Attached to the evidentiary documents was a 3 inch Post-It Note, and in a tone no more “threatening” than one would use with an uncooperative Comcast representative: Buckley demanded action. Boulder Prosecutor Catrina Weigel’s deceptive tactic behind never letting a jury know the “offending” document was a 3 inch Post-It Note is discussed in detail HERE.
What had so-called “Judge” James Hartmann done? He altered (read: Forged) the evidence, took the “threatening” 3 inch Post-It Note, filed it with the Court as a “true, complete, and accurate” document that Buckley had sent him, THEN feigned fear three years later in sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court. Judge James Hartmann had been Accessory to Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, Wage Theft, And Fraud for over three years, and now sought REVENGE against his accuser.
The evidence pack, obtained from Fmr. CDLE Director Ellen Golombek, sent to James Hartmann April 4, 2011 with the attached Post-It Note proved Buckley’s former employers had sworn simultaneously before BOTH the Weld County District Court, AND the Colorado Division of Labor, that NEITHER had jurisdiction over Buckley’s claim for accrued wages, because the matter was before the OTHER: a Class 4 FELONY.
Three days later, Buckley would elicit a confession of crime before Weld County Court Judge John Briggs. Hartmann would spend over 3 years concealing, aiding and abetting this crime, irrefutably proven April 4, 2011, and confessed to, April 7, 2011.
The Colorado Attorney General’s Office would also conceal this same evidence in 2012, when Buckley was falsely convicted of Class 3 misdemeanor “Harassment” of his former employers in Weld County Court for demanding the liens be removed from his property: the criminal acts of the Weld County District Attorney and “Judge” Michele Meyer are the subjects of other articles on The Hartmann Conspiracy.
Buckley had violently underestimated Judge James Hartmann’s capacity for revenge and criminal conduct.
Q Now, is it to say — well, you’re here testifying
in this criminal case against Mr. Buckley. Is it fair to
say that when you were presiding over the case as the judge,
your duty is to uphold people’s rights?
Q Do you take that into consideration?
Q When he brought you the letter in April of 2011
about the lien, legally, was there anything you could do
about the lien?
A No, not at that time.
Q Was that in your jurisdiction in terms of what you
were assigned to handle in that case?
A It was not. The judgment was final, and he did
not file a motion under applicable rules of civil procedure
to vacate that motion in April of 2011.
Q So could you have done anything to fix the lien?
A No, not based on what he provided to me.
Certainly, there was nothing Hartmann could have done, based on what the jury was allowed to perceive Buckley had sent him. A “letter”, bearing the words, “You need to fix this”, provided Hartmann no basis in legal fact to, “fix this”, and was made to sound like the irrational ramblings of a disgruntled litigant.
No rules of Civil Procedure applied here. This had become a criminal matter, and James Hartmann was BOUND by Oath of Office, and Colorado law to report it. He would not. He chose to attack the victim with property liens, wage garnishments, and incarceration, in criminal conspiracy with Congressman (then Weld DA) Ken Buck, for “Harassment” of the employers.
So, what happened to what Buckley actually sent to “Judge” Hartmann on April 4, 2011? It was gone: destroyed, never to be seen in a courtroom, or mentioned by an officer of the Court again. What were Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s obligations according to his Oath of Office and the Law? According to the LAW, a mere trifling inconvenience for those implicated in The Hartmann Conspiracy, they KNEW, and have known Hartmann’s obligations for ten years. For the rest of you readers, please briefly review the applicable law. C.R.S. § 18-8-306 C.R.P.C. Rule 8.4, Judicial Canon and Colo. R. Civ. P. 251.4 don’t lie… but Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann DOES.
Felony victim Craig Buckley concluded, “This bullshit should have stopped in April, 2011, but they chose to destroy my life to protect a corrupt Judge. The liens, the garnishments, the home invasions, the false arrests and convictions, the decimation of my life and reputation: it ALL should have stopped ten years ago.”
The Colorado Attorney General, and the Colorado Judicial Discipline Commission have spent 10 years concealing corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s commission of multiple felonies. There is no statute of limitations on FORGERY. James Hartmann must be removed from the Bench. It is time to STOP THIS FELON.
