Interim Boulder County Colorado District Attorney, and Democratic candidate in the November 2018 race, Michael Dougherty, purports to aggressively support the rights of workers whom have been cheated out of wages, claiming (correctly under the Colorado Wage Act) that an employer’s unlawful withholding of wages is a criminal act. His predecessor, Stan Garnett, didn’t see it that way, claiming that the willful withholding of rightfully earned wages was a, “civil matter”. So, what do we do about this? The Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct, and the Oath Of Office to which he has sworn to both, to uphold the law, demand compliance.
A wage claim lawsuit filed in the Weld County District Court by Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley would put former Boulder DA Stan Garnett’s wrongful interpretation of the law to the test, as the employers had fraudulently sworn before the Colorado Division of Labor that Buckley was unentitled to his award of accrued wages upon termination of employment, because he had worked for the employer, now defunct Dream Stone Marble & Granite, for less than one year.
Buckley was FORCED to sue, as the employers, the known crime-family of Scott Murphy (CEO), Ron Murphy (VP), and Ida Murphy (Secretary/Treasurer), had already conned the Colorado Division of Labor, and specifically (Fmr.) Director Michael McArdle into believing their story.
Buckley’s 26 months of sequential, uninterrupted pay check stubs would prove the Murphy’s, and their criminally complicit attorney Daniel T. Goodwin’s story to be a lie. A Class 4 felony, in fact: attempt to influence a public servant is a serious criminal offense under C.R.S. 18-8-306.
The employers, and known felon Daniel T. Goodwin, refused to produce Buckley’s time cards corroborating the duration of employment evidence by his paycheck stubs. Over and over again: before the Courts, before the Division of Labor, the timecards were not to be obtained: EVER.
Court transcript evidence now proves that known felon, Congressman (then Weld County District Attorney) Ken Buck, ordered the timecards destroyed.
In a final blow to Justice, and any enforceable provision of the Colorado Wage Act, the employers, again through their criminally complicit attorney Daniel T. Goodwin, NOW decided they would rid themselves of Buckley, and his incriminating demands that they produce evidence pertaining to his duration of employment, once and for all.
They decided to swear 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.
Fraudulently misapplying Workers’ Compensation Law, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann unlawfully stripped Buckley of all evidence, and the right to prosecute his wage claim before the Weld County District Court. Hartmann, having maliciously failed to compel the Defendants to comply with the mandatory rule under C.R.Civ.P. to meet and confer regarding the allegations and claims of the civil case pre-trial, engaged in what the Colorado Supreme Court, in its 2015 rewrite of Rule 16 referred to as, ” trial by ambush”. Buckley was stripped of his Due Process, and prosecutorial right mere hours before having been commanded (in violation of Discovery Rules) to appear and produce by Subpoena Duces Tecum.
A recorded interview with Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer, the lawmaker responsible for the 2014 revisions to the Colorado Wage Act, would later reveal that Judge James Hartmann had no right, under current Colorado law, to strip Buckley of his Due Process right to seek redress before the Court.
Buckley challenged the jurisdiction of the Court to enter a ruling which failed to comply with Colorado law: the challenge to subject-matter jurisdiction was summarily ignored by Judge James Hartmann.
Buckley, rightfully under the law, then refused to submit to the jurisdiction of James Hartman’s, “Corrupt Court”. Buckley’s case was dismissed with prejudice, attorneys’ fees were (fraudulently) awarded to the Defendants, liens, wage garnishments, and years of unrelenting harassment by Judge James Hartmann were to follow.
According to the LAW (a mere trifling inconvenience to the corrupt government actors implicated in this years-long terrorist endeavor) jurisdiction of the Court may be challenged at any time, and once challenged, it becomes mandatory that the Court produce evidence: findings of fact and conclusions of law, pertinent and applicable to continuing jurisdiction. Judge James Hartmann’s fraudulent ruling, stripping Buckley of his Due Process rights under C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act and dismissing his case with prejudice, was not simply voidable, but VOID on ts face: of NO legal force or effect.
The paper-trail, and the mountainous evidence against corrupt government employees, implicating them in their years-long criminal conspiracy to conceal this serious felony act may well have vanished form history: but for one problem. That problem’s name was Ellen Golombek: former Director of Colorado’s Department of Labor & Employment.
There were now a whole lot of people, in a whole lot of trouble.
Buckley contacted the employers directly. In a spate of angry emails, he had demanded that he multiple liens now encumbering his home as a result of Judge James Hartmann’s fraudulent rulings be removed. Congressman Ken Buck, notwithstanding having full knowledge of the employers’ commission of Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant and Fraud Upon the Court, immediately had Buckley arrested on a Class 3 Misdemeanor charge of Harassment of the employers. According to Longmont Police official policy, as gleaned from a recent interview with a high ranking officer, standard practice and procedure for the Class 3 misdemeanor offense of “harassment” is to issue a summons for the Defendant to appear for arraignment: a “bench warrant”. Ken Buck, in criminal conspiracy with Judge James Hartmann, and Weld County District Court Judge Thomas Quammen, raided Buckley’s home, forcibly incarcerated him, and brought him to the Weld County Jail: held on a $20,000.00 bond for a Class 3 Misdemeanor. Retaliation? You bet. Pissed at having been exposed? You bet they were.
Corrupt Weld County Authorities were LIVID about Buckley’s creation of the website: www.weldcountycorruption.com, and wanted revenge.
The employers had admitted their commission of Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant in sworn testimony before Weld County Court Judge John Briggs. Days later, CDLE Director Ellen Golombek sent Buckley a 7lb. FedEx package of confidential interagency memoranda irrefutably proving the employers has committed Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, and Fraud Upon the Court.
When presented with evidence of Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant and Fraud Upon the Court, Congressman (then Weld County DA) Ken Buck stated to Buckley and his girlfriend of (now) 24 years, as he rocked back and forth menacingly on the heels of his cowboy boots 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”.
Corrupt Ken Buck then appointed two FELONY PROSECUTORS, Weld County Chief Deputy DA Steve Wrenn, and Deputy DA (now Franklin D. Azar settlement-mill, sweatshop worker) Sarah J. Bousman to prosecute the Class 3 Misdemeanor case.
The case was rife with perjury. A “Kangaroo Court” at its finest. “Judge” Michele Meyer, known felon Judge James Hartmann’s subordinate, presided over the proceedings. Buckley was not allowed to speak, or present evidence. The known-felon employers, so-called “victims”, were allowed to state how much they had “suffered” to the jury, in the lobby of the Courthouse while the trial was in progress. Buckley’s subpoena of the timecard evidence was quashed, and he was not allowed to speak. Buckley’s subpoena of known felon, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann was quashed, and Buckley was, once again, not allowed to speak in rebuttal to the Assistant Colorado Attorneys General whom had been dispatched form Denver to obstruct justice.
Buckley was, of course, found guilty. At sentencing, a falsified pre-sentencing report was presented to him mere minutes before the sentencing hearing was to commence. Buckley objected, as the triflingly irrelevant LAWS of the State of Colorado do not apply to him: the laws of the State of Colorado command that a Defendant must be presented with the pre-sentence report at minimum 72 hours before the sentencing hearing to be allowed preparation for rebuttal.
Judge Michele Meyer told Buckley, “you can take a few minutes to go outside and look at it, (the PSI Report) but we’re gonna do this right now”.
But even after this false/malicious conviction, Buckley wouldn’t “roll over”, and shut-up. They wanted MORE.
With millions of dollars in salaries, reputations, and careers riding on concealment of government actors’ criminal complicity in, now, multiple felony acts, there was but one option: ATTACK. ATTACK MORE…AND ATTACK HARDER.
Next thing you know, the employers, not satisfied with fraudulently obtained liens on Buckley’s house, wanted his wages. Corrupt Judge James Hartmann, had already been in possession of the evidence obtained from CDLE Director Ellen Golombek, proving the employers, Dream Stone, Inc. had stripped Buckley of his Due Process Rights by fraud, swearing to both the Court and the DOL that neither had jurisdiction over Buckley’s wage claim, because the matter was before the other. But that didn’t matter.
Ida Murphy of Dream Stone, Inc. hired yet another “scumbag” (according to Craig Buckley) lawyer to harass him: Jacques Ruda. They wanted the deed to Buckley’s house.
Caught in crime, exposed on www.weldcountycorruption.com, and with irrefutable proof of his complicity in the felonious acts of the civil Defendants, Judge James Hartmann then perceived he had the right to appoint his own successor, subordinate (now retired) Judge Daniel Maus, to do his bidding.
An astute reader, by this point, would realize that corrupt Weld County authorities have this wrapped up in a nice tidy little package for themselves.They do. Read on…
With irrefutable proof of Fraud Upon the Court, Void Civil Judgement, and Judge James Hartmann’s complicity in crime, staggeringly senile and corrupt Judge Daniel Maus, acted on collection attorney Jacques Ruda’s demand that Buckley relinquish tax returns, bank statements, and the deed to his home to the civil Defendants. Buckley flatly refused, citing James Hartmann’s void civil judgment, violation of Due Process Rights, and Fraud Upon the Court.
Corrupt Daniel Maus’ problem, according to legal analysts, is that once deprivation of rights of a Constitutional magnitude are exerted by an aggrieved party, a hearing is mandatory. Much like the mandatory C.R.Civ.P. Rule 16 hearing Buckley demanded in the civil trial, this right was to be denied, so Buckley flatly refused to comply with the sham orders of the corrupt Court.
Buckley’s home was raided several days later by the Longmont, CO Police, and he was illegally arrested, while working on his 1957 Chevy and listening to Johnny Cash on Pandora.
Buckley was pissed: as corrupt Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett KNEW about the Fraud Upon the Court, the Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, and known felons’, Judge James Hartmann, and Congressman Ken Buck’s complicity in the multiple felony offenses two years prior to this illegal raid.
Ten days later, Buckley, while once again sitting in his garage, minding his own business, listening to Johnny Cash, and working on his 1957 Chevy, was assaulted by Longmont, Colorado Stormtroopers executing an arrest warrant, issued by Boulder DA Stan Garnett who had full knowledge of Judge James Hartmann’s complicity in crime, for the Class 4 felony Charge of ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’, for a supposed, “credible threat” statement Buckley was purported to have made against corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann during the course of the first illegal raid on his home.
According to an interview with David Wymore, civil attorney for wrongfully convicted Tim masters, Stan Garnett prosecuted this “bullshit” case as a personal favor to his, “butt buddy” Ken Buck.
Meanwhile, the personal attacks against Craig Buckley for exposing Ken Buck’s and James Hartmann’s criminal attacks escalated, as his website, www.weldcountycorruption.com, increasingly became a “problem” for Ken Buck, who was mounting his political campaign for Congress at the time. Buckley received death threats, as well as lunging personal attacks on social media from such cronies as KCNC “Investigative” reporters Brian Maass, and Rick Sallinger.
In a sham trial rife with perjured testimony by so-called “victim” Judge James Hartmann, tampered evidence supplied by Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, and Chief Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel, Buckley was convicted of one count of Class 4 Felony ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’ in April, 2014.
Intimidated, coerced, and realizing “career suicide” should he stand up to a corrupt Judge, Buckley’s so-called “defense attorney” Michael Root, who was paid for by the State of Colorado, made no attempt to defend Buckley, nor attack the illegal raid the Weld County District Court had imposed on his home. The official Court transcript proving Catrina Weigel’s evidence tampering, subornation of felony perjury, and obstruction of justice clearly evidences conduct necessitating disbarment and incarceration of the offending prosecutor.
So, will Boulder County District attorney Michael Dougherty follow through on his campaign promises? Will he “seek justice”? Will he fight for workers who have been unlawfully denied wages” Will he expunge or correct wrongful convictions? Even if he merely complies with the Law of Voids, CRPC Rules, and his oath to uphold the Constitution, there’s a lot of people about to be removed from their official positions of authority, and disbarred.
