Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s illegal acts entered into two standardized tests: the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, and the Hare Psychopathy Checklist.
Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by a lack of empathy for others. The Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, or LSRP was developed in 1995 for use in psychological research. It measures on two scales: primary psychopathy (psychopathic emotional affect) and secondary psychopathy (psychopathic lifestyle).
The Psychopathy Checklist or Hare Psychopathy Checklist-Revised, now the Psychopathy Checklist—revised (PCL-R), is a psychological assessment tool most commonly used to assess the presence of psychopathy in individuals. It is a 20-item inventory of perceived personality traits and recorded behaviors, intended to be completed on the basis of a semi-structured interview along with a review of ‘collateral information’ such as official records.
The record of the Court in civil action 09CV991, a Weld County District Court wage claim case which came before Judge James Hartmann in 2011, and 13CR114, a Boulder County District Court Criminal case brought against civil Plaintiff Craig Buckley two years later by so-called “victim” James Hartmann as an outgrowth of the civil matter, spawned serious questions as to the mental fitness of Judge James Hartmann to serve on the bench.
Judge James Hartmann had Buckley jailed for alleged “threatening” statements Buckley had purportedly made against Hartmann during an illegal raid on Buckley’s home by the Weld County District Court.
Hartmann is alleged to have initiated a years-long campaign of retaliation and attack against Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley after he had obtained evidence from Colorado Dept. of Labor & Employment Director Ellen Golombek, proving that the Weld County District Court Chief Judge had been aiding and abetting multiple felonies by civil Defendants in the Weld County wage claim case.

While omitting several test standards, such as sexually deviant behavior, proneness to boredom, and others for which our researchers had no access to evidence, James Hartmann’s psychological evaluation, based on evidence available, revealed significant behavior symptomatic of Narcissistic Personality Disorder.
The evidentiary materials, which consisted of Court pleadings, Orders, Court transcripts, witness statements, and administrative filings from various government and law enforcement agencies, were used to calculate Judge James Hartmann’s answers to each of the questions administered in the psychopathy tests.
The transcript excerpts contained within the various motions prove James Hartmann’s sworn testimony at Buckley’s trial was rife with perjured statements serving no purpose other than protection of Hartmann’s reputation, career, and ego.
Further, James Hartmann, supposedly a Judge, an Officer of the Court, whom had lied on the witness stand, and later at sentencing, called his victim/criminal Defendant Craig Buckley, “fixated”. Once Buckley was convicted of “Retaliation Against a Judge”, Hartmann walked up to him in the Courtroom, surrounded by bodyguards, and said, “I wish you luck”.
“It was one of the most horrifying, disgusting moments of my life,” recounts Buckley. “I’m surprised this little psychopath didn’t mount and hump me right there: he commits felony perjury, than decides he’s going to walk up and shake my hand to drill it in, that’s fucking sick.”
Future Hartmann Conspiracy articles will delve into James Hartmann’s perjured testimony, as it conflicts with the record of the Court, in a line by line analysis.
Craig Buckley claims he has been under attack by James Hartmann for in excess of seven years, “I believe James Hartmann is a deeply disturbed individual who’s totally detached from reality, and incapable of accepting responsibility for his criminal acts,” Buckley said. “He’s an extremely dangerous man who will stop at nothing to protect his ego amd retaliate against his perceived enemies. I live in fear every day”.
Based on use of the known/provable data obtained from Court documents and official transcripts, James Hartmann scored higher than 97.3% of respondents in the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale, and higher than 98.5% of respondents in the Hare Psychopathy Checklist.
