Boulder Daily Camera – Censorship and Concealment of Crime! Craig Buckley, Longmont, CO homeowner, victimized by years of Government attack blocked from posting comments regarding Michael Dougherty’s Conviction Integrity Unit on the Boulder Daily Camera’s Facebook page.
Rebuttal to the Boulder Daily Camera – While it is necessary to examine possible wrongful convictions in serious cases of rape and murder, it is also necessary for Michael Dougherty to investigate lesser cases of wrongful conviction due to the malfeasance of prosecutors under the previous Boulder District Attorney’s Office, spearheaded by former DA Stan Garnett. In this case, the proven wrongful conviction of Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley.
Evidence on the record of the Court proves that Boulder County Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel fraudulently obtained conviction of Craig Buckley, of Longmont, Colorado on the F4 charge of ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’ in 2014 by obstruction of Justice, evidence tampering, and subornation of perjury.
According to a December 23, 2015 interview Craig Buckley had with Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann had violated Craig Buckley’s rights under C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act, and illegally and without jurisdiction raided Buckley’s home on a civil contempt warrant, because Buckley had refused to give the deed to his house to his former employers. Ten days later, Craig Buckley’s North Longmont, CO home was again illegally raided by authorities and Buckley was arrested on a charge of ‘retaliation Against a Judge’ for an alleged “credible threat” statement he was purported to have made against Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann during the course of the first illegal raid.
Buckley’s former employers, (now defunct) Dream Stone, Inc. had sworn simultaneously before both the Weld County District Court, and the Colorado Division of Labor, that neither had jurisdiction over his accrued wage claim, because the matter was before the other: constituting Second degree Perjury, and Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant. Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann then illegally stripped Buckley of the Due Process Right and all evidence necessary to prosecute his wage claim mere hours before he had been (in violation of Discovery Rules) unlawfully commanded to appear and produce by subpoena duces tecum.
This was, in fact, Craig Buckley’s former employers’ second act of the Class 4 Felony, as they had previously sworn before the Division of Labor that he was not entitled to an award of accrued wages, because he had not worked for Dream Stone, Inc. for a full year. Seeking criminal charges against the employers a full two years before Boulder County authorities would illegally raid his home, Craig Buckley presented (Fmr.) Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, Congressman (then Weld County DA) Ken Buck, and (Fmr.) Colorado Attorney General John Suthers with a complete record of continuous, sequential paycheck stubs irrefutably proving uninterrupted employment in excess of 26 months. Congressman (Fmr. Weld County DA) Ken Buck, and (Fmr.) Boulder County DA Stan Garnett had been in possession of this paycheck stub evidence since 2009.
That was to have been the employers first act of Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, through their criminally complicit attorney, Broomfield, CO based Daniel T. Goodwin.
Craig Buckley demanded production of time cards, and the evidence spanning four Courts, and CDLE internal memoranda, would prove that the government, including former Boulder County DA Stan Garnett, and Congressman Ken Buck would obstruct Craig Buckley’s right to obtain that evidence for the next four years, until the time cards were finally ordered destroyed by Congressman (then Weld County DA) Ken Buck.
Craig Buckley sought criminal charges against the employers: Boulder County DA Stan Garnett was unresponsive: (then Weld County DA) Congressman Ken Buck was belligerent. Buckley was forced by the illegal acts of his former employers before the Colorado Division of Labor, and their criminally complicit attorney, Broomfield, CO based Daniel T. Goodwin, to file a complaint in Court: all details deliberately concealed by the Longmont Times-Call, and the Boulder Daily Camera.
Mere hours before Craig Buckley had been commanded without good cause appearing on the record of the Court (in violation of C.R.Civ.P. Discovery Rules) by subpoena Duces Tecum to Appear and Produce, Judge James Hartmann illegally, and in violation of C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act, stripped Buckley of all evidence and the Due Process Right to prosecute his wage claim before the Weld County District Court.
On December 23, 2015 Colorado House Representative Jonathan Singer, in a recorded telephone interview with Craig Buckley, confirmed the illegality of Judge James Hartmann’s actions stating,” Prior to the 2015 revisions to the Colorado Wage Act, the DOL had little more authority than to write the employers a ‘nasty letter’, and that worked maybe 50% of the time”.
Colorado House representative Jonathan Singer, in his conversation with Craig Buckley, went on to agree that Weld County was, “corrupt”.
James Hartmann had also previously refused to compel defense attorney Daniel T. Goodwin to “meet and confer” as is “mandatory” under C.R.Civ.P. Rule 16. The total revision of C.R.Civ.P. Rule 16 in 2015 directly addresses Judge James Hartmann’s abuse of discretion, and describes James Hartmann’s unethical actions as, “trial by ambush”.
Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann had also illegally ordered Craig Buckley to pay fees related to the Defendants’ response to a Motion for which no fees were awarded. A Motion for Protective Orders was filed (denied) in which the Court’s jurisdiction was challenged, as well as Judge James Hartmann’s abuse of discretion in violating Due process Rights. Under C.R.S. 8-4-110(2): “Any person claiming to be aggrieved by violation of any provisions of this article or regulations prescribed pursuant to this article may file suit in any court having jurisdiction over the parties without regard to exhaustion of any administrative remedies.” Judge James Hartmann was in violation of the law, and has surrendered jurisdiction over Buckley’s wage claim. All actions taken by “the Court” thereafter were illegal. All evidence pointing to the illegality of Judge James Hartmann’s actions would later be concealed by (Fmr.) Boulder County district Attorney Stan Garnett and Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel.
Judge James Hartmann belligerently refused to produce proof of continuing jurisdiction on the record of the Court. It is a well prescedented matter of law that (a) jurisdiction can be challenged at any time, and (b) once challenged, jurisdiction must be proven to exist. Judge James Hartmann, due to his violations of Due process Rights and statutory law in the civil wage claim case, surrendered jurisdiction on April 17, 2011. Judge James Hartmann then ‘perceived’ that he dismissed Buckley’s case with prejudice on April 21, 2011, awarding in excess of $20,000.00 in attorneys’ fees to the former employers. Subsequent appearances before the Judges James Hartmann appointed to violate craig Buckley’s Due Process rights after dismissal of the case, (Ret.) Judge Daniel Maus, and Judge Todd Taylor, would yield continuing refusal to produce proof of continuing jurisdiction on the record of the Court.
On May 31, 2012, Craig Buckley received a 7 1/2 lb.FedEx package from (Fmr.) Colorado Dept. of Labor & Employment Director Ellen Golombek containing confidential internal memoranda irrefutably proving the former employers, and their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin had, in fact, Committed Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant; having sworn simultaneously 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.
This evidence was immediately forwarded on, April 1, 2012, to the Boulder County District Attorney, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann, (Fmr.) Weld County District Attorney ken Buck, (Fmr.) Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, Weld County District Attorney’s Office Chief Investigator keith Olson, (Fmr.) Weld County Sheriff Senator John Cooke, Governor John Hickenlooper, First Assistant Attorney General John Lizza, and agent John Gedney of the Denver Division of the FBI.
Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann’s response to receipt of this evidence was to conceal the Fraud Upon the Court, and “feign fear”. This fact is well documented in this February 17, 2018 post at www.hartmannconspiracy.com
(Fmr.) Weld County Sheriff, Senator John Cooke‘s response was to appoint numerous Weld County Sheriff’s Officers to stalk, harass, intimidate, and terrorize Buckley, for having demanded the two counts of F4 Attempt to Influence a Public servant, be prosecuted.
Congressman Ken Buck’s response to this evidence was to have Craig Buckley arrested and held on a $20,000.00 bond for Class 3 Misdemeanor harassment of the known-felon former employers, for an angry spate of emails he had written, demanding the liens on his home, obtained by Fraud Upon the Court and F4 attempt to Influence a Public Servant, be removed.
Congressman Ken Buck, days after receiving the evidence of crime obtained from CDLE Director Ellen Golombek, and after a sworn confession of the employers’ crimes before Judge John Briggs of the Weld County Court, stated to Craig Buckley in the lobby of his Centennial Building office:
“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.” – Congressman Ken Buck
Weld County District Attorney’s Office Chief Investigator Keith Olson, and (Present) Weld County District Attorney Michael J. Rourke were also in attendance. Ken Buck then appointed two felony prosecutors to obtain Buckley’s conviction for “harassment” of my former employers: known felons Ron Murphy, Scott Murphy, and Ida Murphy, owners of Dream Stone, Inc.
Colorado Attorney General John Guthers’ and First Assistant Attorney General John Lizza’s response to CDLE Director Ellen Golombek’s evidence, and Judge James Hartmann’s (then) 2 year campaign to conceal, aid, abet, and compound crime, was to send two Attorneys General to Greeley to quash Craig Buckley’s subpoena of Judge James Hartmann before Weld County Court Judge Michele Meyer.
In July 2013, the Weld County District Court illegally raided Craig Buckley’s Longmont, CO home and incarcerated him on a civil contempt warrant. Buckley had refused to give the deed to his house to his former employers, in support of their fraudulently obtained dismissal of the wage claim case and subsequent wage garnishments and property liens obtained on his house.
In a choreographed retaliatory campaign by Congressman Ken Buck, and his friend Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, Craig Buckley’s home was illegally raided 10 days later, and he was incarcerated for F4 ‘Retaliation Against a Judge” for an alleged “credible threat” statement he was purported to have made against Judge James Hartmann during the Weld County District Court’s first illegal raid. The alleged offending statement was,”There will be blood”, and pertained to a pleading by Motion Buckley had made before the Weld County Court regarding (Fmr.) Weld County DA Ken Buck being “out for blood” for my having exposed his, and Judge James Hartmann’s criminal complicity in the illegal acts of the former employers on the website, www.weldcountycorruption.com .
There was no threat made against Judge James Hartmann, such as, “I’m gonna”, or “he’s gonna”: no proper noun, nor indefinite reference pronoun ever pertained to Judge James Hartmann. Ken Buck, Stan Garnett, and James Hartmann wanted Buckley silenced and punished for accusing them of crime.
According to the official 2014 Court transcript of Judge James Hartmann’s sworn testimony, the trial was rife with perjury. Prosecutor Catrina Weigel had knowingly, and with extreme malice suborned felony perjury by Judge James Hartmann, had obstructed justice, concealed evidence, and tampered with evidence for no purpose other than concealing Judge James Hartmann’s involvement in crime. Well documented evidence of Stan Garnett and Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel’s prosecutorial misconduct appears throughout www.hartmannconspiracy.com
In a pro-se post-trial Motion before Boulder County District Court Judge Andrew Hartmann seeking to vacate the false conviction which had been obtained by fraud and prosecutorial misconduct, the “Court” ruled that the allegations of Judge James Hartmann’s perjury and obstruction “even if true” were “not material” to the case.
In a 2013 interview with wrongfully convicted Tim Masters’ attorney, David Wymore, he referred to Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett’s prosecution of this case as, “bullshit”, and stated that Garnett was prosecuting the case for his “butt buddy”, Ken Buck.
The Boulder County District Attorney’s Office had proof of Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann’s multiple criminal acts in 2011, yet chose to attack Craig Buckley in 2014.
Craig Buckley stated, “I am not optimistic for Justice before the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office under Mr. Michael Dougherty. Deputy DA Catrina Weigel, based on the evidence of prosecutorial misconduct, subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice, and evidence tampering, should rightfully be fired and disbarred.” If it’s legal to extort fees from people for response to Motions for which no fees were awarded, Hartmann could have explained his ruling: there are provisions for doing just that in the Colorado Code of Judicial Conduct. If it’s legal for an employer to swear simultaneously before both the Court and the DOL that neither had jurisdiction over my wage claim, because the matter was before the other, and quash the complainants Due Process Rights before both, Hartmann could have explained that, to. Problem is, there IS NO LAWFUL EXPLANATION for what Judge James Hartmann did, which is why he, and all the agencies he has enlisted, including the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office, have attacked, terrorized, humiliated, and wrought financial decimation on me, from April 2011 through July 18, 2017… and onward.”
