August 30, 2011Supreme Court Nominating Committee,Chief Justice Michael Bender,
Ex
Officio Chair

West Colfax Avenue, Suite 800Denver, Co, 80202Re: Hon. Brian BoatrightDear Chief Justice Bender and Members
of
the Committee:I am writing to recommend District Judge Brian Boatright for your consideration as youevaluate nominees to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created
by
Justice Martinez' retirement. Iknow that he applied for the last vacancy on the Court, and I was pleased to learn this morningthat
he is
applying again.I first knew Brian as a Deputy District Attorney in the Jefferson County DistrictAttorney's Office. On the occasions when
he
appeared before me, he was prepared, reasonable,a skilled advocate, and above all, a true professional.
He
enjoyed an excellent reputation withthe other judges as well. I was delighted when he was appointed
to
the district bench here in
1999.
During his first two years Brian had a mixed criminal, civil and domestic relationsdocket, typical
of
the district judges here, Then from 2001 through approximately 2005 hisdocket was adjusted somewhat, primarily consisting
of
civil, juvenile, probate and mental healthcases.
In
2006 I assigned Brian
to be
our full-time juvenile judge, and he has remained in thatposition to this time. Brian requested this assignment because
of
his experience in handlingjuvenile matters and his deep commitment to children.
In
addition to being a superb juvenilejudge, Brian has headed juvenile committees
in
Jefferson County and is constantly working withothers inside and outside Jefferson County to advance practices and procedures to better servechildren and families. One example
is
that he created our Family Integrated or ·'FIT" Court,which
is
essentially a juvenile counterpart
to
our adult drug court. Another example
is
a BestPractices Team, which
is
a collaborative team that looks at practices. procedures and programs toimprove services for families.Brian is bright, a wonderful writer. and a diligent worker.
He
has an exemplary judicialdemeanor. One indicator
of
that is that when judges around the state who were up for retention
