Removal From The Bench and Disbarment Imminent For Corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann.
In 2009, Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley filed a lawsuit against his former employers for accrued wages due and payable upon termination of employment. “Judge” James Hartmann was supposedly bound by the Rules of Judicial Conduct (Judicial Canon), and swore this oath upon being appointed to the Bench:
Each justice or judge of the United States shall take the following oath or affirmation before performing the duties of his office: “I, ___ ___, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will administer justice without respect to persons, and do equal right to the poor and to the rich, and that I will faithfully and impartially discharge and perform all the duties incumbent upon me as ___ under the Constitution and laws of the United States. So help me God.”
Accrued wages due (vacation pay) was the cornerstone of the lawsuit pursuant to C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act. Buckley, shortly after filing the lawsuit, filed a report with the Colorado Division of Labor, seeking only that criminal charges and fines be levied against the employer. Here is what they did:
On February 23, 2010 8:05 AM the employers plead this before the Colorado Division of Labor:
“…and Mr. Buckley are the only two ex-employees of Dream Stone who have ever filed claims for vacation pay, and they are claiming payment for hours that are clearly not due them. In addition, they have included these claims as part of the lawsuit that they have filed in the Weld County District Court.”
On May 6, 2010 2:55 PM the employers plead this before the Colorado Division of Labor:
“I have talked to our attorney and yes, indeed, Mr. Buckley has made the CDLE
part of his complaint in Court.”
On May 7, 2010 the employers plead this before the Weld County District Court:
…as to the issue of vacation pay, Plaintiff chose the Colorado Department
of Labor and Employment (“CDLE”) as the forum to decide the issue. The CDLE has not issued
an order which Plaintiff seeks to have this Court review. This Court lacks the subject matter
jurisdiction to hear Plaintiffs claims regarding unemployment benefits or wage issues against
Dream Stone, Inc.
On May 12, 2010 9:18 AM the employers plead this before the Colorado Division of Labor:
“I just wanted to confirm in writing our conversation this morning regarding the email I sent you may 6, 2010 regarding Mr. Buckley and the fact that he has made the vacation pay part of his Weld County lawsuit.”
On May 12, 2010 12:13 PM the employers plead this before the Colorado Division of Labor:
“I assumed that the vacation pay issue was with CDLE/unemployment However, now knowing that you are with the Division of Labor does not affect anything. The “vacation” issue IS part of his lawsuit in Weld County, as is evidenced by his own filings that I sent you. However. if Mr. Buckley did not divulge to you that the issue was not part of his lawsuit in Weld County, then he was not being truthful.”
On May 12, 2010 4:23 PM the Colorado Division of Labor ruled as follows:
… because your claim has been filed/appears to be filed through court, DOL
lacks the ability to become and/or to stay involved; DOL does not have statutory
authority over the court(s). DOL is required to close your claim for unpaid vacation pay.
On June 17, 2010 Weld County District Court Judge James Hartmann Ruled as follows:
Whether Defendants owe Plaintiff payment for accrued vacation pay is an issue
before the CDLE and not this court.
On April 1, 2011 “Judge” James Hartmann, Congressman (former Weld County District Attorney) Ken Buck, Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, (Fmr.) Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, FBI-Denver Division, were sent this evidence. “Judge” James Hartmann would later admit, in sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court, the evidence which was obtained from CDLE Director Ellen Golombek, was in his possession on April 4, 2011.
On April 7, 2010, in sworn testimony before the Weld County Court, Dream Stone, Inc. VP Ronald Murphy, testified as follows:
Q: I will refer you to Plaintiffs’ Exhibit No. 2, which states:
“You have sworn and managed to convince the Weld
County District Court that my earned accrued wage
claim was before the Colorado Division of Labor, and,
therefore, the Court has no jurisdiction.”
Is that true, Mr. Murphy?
A: That’s true.
“You have simultaneously sworn and managed to
convince the” — “convince the Colorado Division of
Labor that my earned accrued wage claim was before
the Weld County Court, and, therefore, the DOL had no
Is that also true?
A: As far — to my knowledge, that’s true, yes.
On April 7, 2011, I was escorted out of Ken Buck’s office in the Centennial Building of the Weld County Justice Center by five armed Weld County Sheriffs Officers for attempting to present this evidence to the Weld County District Attorney.
Ken Buck stated to me, at that time as follows:
“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.”
The elements of 18-8-306, C.R.S. Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant are statutorily defined as follows:
(1) an attempt to influence a public servant;
(2) by means of deceit or by threat of violence or economic reprisal;
(3) with the intent to alter or affect the public servant’s decision or action.
Ken Buck, James Hartmann, and Stan Garnett then spent the next 3 years harassing and terrorizing me, and my family. Recommended reading: here.
18 U.S. Code § 4 – Misprision of Felony is statutorily defined as follows:
Whoever, having knowledge of the actual commission of a felony cognizable by a court of the United States, conceals and does not as soon as possible make known the same to some judge or other person in civil or military authority under the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
April 21, 2014 “Judge” James Hartmann in sworn testimony- cross examination before the Boulder County District Court:
Q: Now, Exhibit No. 7 is the note that you got, and
this was not hand delivered to you by the Defendant. You
got this through how?
A: It was provided to me by the clerk ‘ s office. So
you’re correct, it was not handed to me by Mr. Buckley.
Q: Oh, on this Exhibit 7, was there anything else
attached to this when you got it?
Q: There was, like, a big pile of pleadings and
documentation saying why you should fix this based on the following?
A Yes. He filed miscellaneous paperwork with that handwritten note.
“Judge” James Hartmann had deliberately obstructed justice by omission of material fact for the purpose of concealing his involvement in Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, and Fraud Upon the Court.
Is James Hartmann, whom had concealed, aided, abetted and compounded the criminal acts of my former employers for three years fit to be a Judge? NO, under the law, James Hartmann’s acts constitute TREASON.
“Any judge who does not comply with his oath to the Constitution of the United States, wars against that Constitution and engages in violation of the Supreme Law of the Land. If a judge does not fully comply with the Constitution, then his orders are void, In re Sawyer, 124 U.S. 200 (1888), he is without jurisdiction, and he/she has engaged in an act or acts of treason.” “U.S. v. Will, 449 U.S. 200, 216, 101 S. Ct. 471, 66 Ed.2d 392, 406 (1980); Cohens v. Virginia, 19 U.S. (6 Wheat) 264, 404, 5 L.Ed 257 (1821)”
Any judge or attorney who does not report the above judge for treason as required by law may themselves be guilty of misprison of treason, 18 U.S.C. Section 2382.
The Government of Colorado, with full knowledge of crime by Judge James Hartmann, Congressman Ken Buck, and Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett should, rightfully, publicly release all transcripts related to the ongoing crimes of the aforementioned. The Government of Colorado WILL, however, continue to use our socioeconomic status to conceal evidence. We need (very expensive) transcripts. Please Donate!
