Greeley, CO – Weld County Court – Evidence obtained by The Hartmann Conspiracy confirms that Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann, former presiding Judge over a civil wage claim action filed in Weld County District Court by Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley, falsified statements during the course of an official investigation to conceal his involvement in numerous criminal acts related to the civil matter.
An Officer of the Court, bound by Oath to uphold the laws of the State of Colorado, the Constitution of the United states, and the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann is considered to be, “under oath” at all times in matters related to performance of his official duties.
On October 1, 2013, the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office released an official investigative report in which Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann was the subject of an interview by DA investigator Maggie Green, and Boulder County Prosecutor, deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel. Buckley had been arrested three months earlier, and charged with ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’ for alleged “threatening” statements he was purported to have made during another arrest, ten days earlier, for refusing to give the deed to his house to his former employers.
According to statements made by Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann on the record, as part of an official investigation into “Retaliation Against a Judge’ charges filed against Buckley as a result of a July 2013 raid on his home, Judge James Hartmann dismissed Buckley’s civil wage claim “with prejudice” because Buckley had refused to submit to “deposition” by the former employers. Proven false by the record of the Court, Judge James Hartmann had actually allowed the employers, and their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, to “slap” Buckley with a Subpoena Duces Tecum, in violation of Discovery Rules, and with no good cause for issuance being shown on the record of the Court.
The report stated, “Judge Hartmann stated that by the end of the case, Buckley was only seeking compensation for his unused vacation. Judge Hartmann stated this was under $1000”. Objective review of the Subpoena Duces tecum, and the demands for production therein reveal, “abuse of Discovery process”.
Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann reports that he had previously had a telephone status conference with Buckley and informed him he had to show up when he was under subpoena for the “deposition”. By this time, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann had already stripped Buckley of the Due Process Right, and all evidence necessary to prosecute his wage claim, in violation of C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act. Buckley’s former employers, Dream stone, Inc. had sworn, through their criminally complicit attorney Daniel T. Goodwin, before BOTH the Weld County District Court, and the Colorado Division of Labor, that NEITHER had jurisdiction over Buckley’s wage claim, because the matter was before the other.
Daniel T. Goodwin had fraudulently cited inapplicable Industrial Claims Appeals Office (Workman’s Compensation Law) to strip Buckley of the evidence, and the right to prosecute his wage claim under Colorado Labor Law.
According to the DA investigative report, ” Judge Hartmann stated that the issue had gone in front of an administration board for workman’s compensation benefits. Buckley felt the defendants (former employers) had lied during this action. Buckley filed a pleading with the court with this information, but the civil case had already been dismissed by Judge Hartmann, and Buckley had not filed an appeal of that decision”.
This is false. the civil Defendants (former employers) had lied before the Weld County District Court, not James Hartmann’s fictitious, “administration board”. Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann was now criminally complicit in Fraud Upon the Court and Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant. Hartmann had been caught as a result of confidential internal documents obtained from Colorado Dept. of Labor & Employment Director, Ellen Golombek.
“This psychopath Hartmann lied to conceal his involvement in Fraud Upon The Court!”, exclaimed Buckley.
“It’s just unbelievable,” stated Buckley. “Weld County Court Chief Judge Hartmann is in utter, complete belligerent defiance of the fact that my employers’ worked a Fraud Upon the Weld County District Court. There was no, ‘administration board’, as he falsely states, and there was no Workman’s Compensation claim. Hartmann is a bald-faced liar.”
While Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s statement is patently false, the bigger issue is Hartmann’s concealment of his own malice, incompetence, and criminal complicity. “Hartmann’s assertion fails on so many levels,” HC’s legal advisor stated. “First, accrued wages are not properly within the jurisdiction of Workman’s Compensation law, that’s the jurisdiction of the Colorado Division of Labor, so Hartmann deliberately misapplied the law to strip Buckley of his Due Process Rights. Second, Labor law, and specifically C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) states that any party aggrieved by any provision of the Colorado Wage Act may file suit in any Court having jurisdiction over the parties, without regard to exhaustion of administrative remedy. Third, timeline analysis of Court documents and Hartmann’s vague admission, ‘Buckley felt the defendants (former employers) had lied during this action’ prove Hartmann was in possession of evidence proving the employers had sworn to both the DOL and the Court that neither had jurisdiction because the matter was before the other. Hartmann clearly evaded this subject, and his concealment of crime in the report. Fourth, the fact that the case,’had already been dismissed’ is irrelevant to the fact that James Hartmann’s rulings and final judgment were VOID for Fraud Upon the Court and Due Process Rights violations. Further, as a pro-se litigant, it’s highly unlikely that Buckley would have had the skills to prevail, or deal with the complexities of appellate procedure. Notwithstanding, Hartmann continued to violate Mr. Buckley’s rights years after proof of crime by the Defendants, and years after he would claim there was nothing he could do, because the case was already dismissed.”
The Boulder District Attorney’s falsified report goes on to say, “After the lien was placed on Buckley’s house, Judge Hartmann received a handwritten note from Buckley. The note was written in Sharpie on a piece of paper and stated, “Hartmann you need to fix this now.” This was turned over to the Weld County Sheriffs Department. They turned it over to the District Attorney’s Office, but the District Attorney’s Office did not file charges. Judge Hartmann stated this was in 2009 or 2010, and he stated that it would be contained in the case file for the civil case”.
An entire article has been written, and goes into full detail about the, “piece of paper” alluded to in the Boulder County District Attorney’s falsified report. Government authorities, for over 7 years, have concealed the purpose, context, and evidentiary materials attached to the so-called offending “piece of paper”, for no purpose other than concealing Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s involvement in crime.
The “piece of paper” was a 3″x3″ 3M Post-It Note, attached to evidentiary materials, obtained from CDLE Director Golombek, proving Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant by Dream Stone, Inc., and their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin. Hartmann’s testimony at trial would later prove he was in possession of this evidence since April 4, 2011, and had concealed, aided, abetted, and compounded crime since that date.
Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett is also known to have been in possession of this evidence of multiple felonies by James Hartmann and the civil Defendants, since April 2011, yet chose to attack victim Craig Buckley in 2013.
Judge James Hartmann received the documents proving Fraud Upon the Court well within the time frame for Hartmann to have issued a sua-sponte Order reversing the dismissal of Buckley’s case, however in conspiracy with seven of his subordinate Judges, Congressman (then Weld County DA) Ken Buck, and Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, Hartmann chose to attack Buckley’s home, finances, and freedom. Why? To save his career.
“Judge James Hartmann is accessory to multiple felonies. Every statement made in this report, and recorded by the Boulder DA, was carefully and deceptively calculated to conceal Hartmann’s surrender of jurisdiction in my civil case, and hide his criminal acts of the next four years,” stated Buckley.

Think the Statute of Limitations has expired on these crimes? It hasn’t. These are ongoing criminal acts, an “active crime scene” if you will. Liens on Buckley’s home, obtained as a result of Judge James Hartmann’s fraud, continue to accrue interest (read theft) at 8% per year.
The Government of Colorado, with full knowledge of crime by Judge James Hartmann, Congressman Ken Buck, Boulder District Attorney Stan Garnett, and others 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!
