Abuse of Power in Arizona: Hear from the Colorado Prosecutors on July 18
Denver, CO (Law Firm Newswire) June 27, 2012 - In March, 2010 the Chief Justice of Arizona asked the Chief Justice of Colorado for help. The Chief Justice's request led to a two-year investigation and trial of the former Maricopa County Attorney and two of his senior prosecutors by attorneys in the Colorado Supreme Court's Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel.
This is a story of years of intimidation and retaliation by the former Maricopa County Attorney. His targets were sitting judges, County Supervisors, County administrators, and private lawyers. After years of prosecutorial misconduct, the Rule of Law in Maricopa County was fast disappearing. As the elected head of the fourth-largest county in the United States, his misuse of power led to the largest lawyer discipline prosecution in history.
Colorado Bar Association CLE will host a presentation of the investigation and prosecution, as well as the harassment and intimidation directed at the disciplinary prosecutors from Colorado, John Gleason and Jamie Sudler. Hear first-hand about their experience in Arizona and their attempt to return justice to Maricopa County. Hear this fascinating story of abuse of power in the justice system in person on July 18.
