To Conceal His Involvement in Crime, Corrupt Weld County Court Chief Judge James Hartmann Lies in Official Boulder DA Investigation.
Boulder, CO – Weld County Judge James F. Hartmann, Chief Judge of Colorado’s 19th Judicial District, took part in a pre-trial investigative interview with Boulder County District Attorney’s Office Chief Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel, and Boulder DA’s Office Investigator Maggie Green , according to official reports.
The interview took place on the heels of a recent arrest of Longmont, CO homeowner, Craig Buckley, on one Felony count of ‘Retaliation Against a Judge’. The Weld County District Court had raided Buckley’s home on a civil warrant for Contempt of Court. Court records indicate that the civil contempt charge was brought, because Buckley had refused to give the deed to his home, financial statements, tax records, and banking information to his former employers, (now defunct) Dream Stone, Inc., a marble & granite countertop fabrication company, where Buckley had worked as a CNC programmer for 2+ years.
Ten days later, Longmont Police were back at Buckley’s home, and he was arrested on the Felony charge for an alleged, “credible threat” statement he was purported to have made during the civil contempt arrest.
Buckley had filed a lawsuit for wages, and Judge James Hartmann stripped him of the right to prosecute his case, in violation of the Colorado Wage Act. The case was dismissed, and multiple liens were filed on Buckley’s home to satisfy the near $20,000.00 in attorneys’ fees Hartmann perceived he had rightfully awarded the Defendants.
This had been the second time Judge James Hartmann would, “feign fear” of Buckley. One year earlier, Buckley had presented Judge James Hartmann with evidence his former employers had committed multiple felonies in the course of defending against Buckley’s lawsuit. Hartmann was scared: not for his safety, but for his career.
“He (Buckley) has also repeatedly made SERIOUS unsubstantiated accusations of criminal conduct against the Defendants and defense counsel. Plaintiff appears to be under the misguided belief that he can make such allegations with impunity.” – Judge James Hartmann.
But the allegations were not, “unsubstantiated”, and Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartman was now an Accessory to multiple crimes: Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, Fraud Upon the Court, Forgery, First Degree Perjury, and Wage Theft. Buckley was unable to seek resolution before the Division of Labor, because the employers had fraudulently sworn that Buckley had worked for Dream stone for less than a year, and was not entitled to wages due upon termination, despite the fact that government authorities had been in possession of 26 months of Buckley’s sequential, uninterrupted paycheck stubs.
The evidence presented to Hartmann proved that while the Defendants, Dream Stone, Inc., and their criminally complicit attorney, Broomfield, CO based Daniel T. Goodwin were swearing to the Division of Labor that it did not have jurisdiction to preside over Buckley’s wage claim, because the matter was before the Court, they were simultaneously swearing before the Court that it did not have jurisdiction over the wage claim, because the matter was before the Colorado Division of Labor.
Attorney Daniel T. Goodwin had also falsified an Affidavit of Attorney’s Fees, causing the Defendants to be paid for a response to Motion, for which no fees were awarded. Judge James Hartmann ruled, “The Court rejects the Plaintiff’s argument”. Hartmann would later, in sworn testimony, commit Felony Perjury to conceal his involvement in the Attorneys’ Fees theft.
The Jurisdiction of the Court was challenged, yet no proof of continuing Jurisdiction would be entered into the record of the Court by Judge James Hartmann. For Fraud Upon the Court, and Due Process Rights violations, Judge James Hartmann’s Order dismissing the case in the Defendants’ favor was VOID.
Despite the void civil judgment against Buckley, Hartmann bullied on, appointing (Ret.) Judge Daniel Maus to continue the harassment of Buckley, right up to the point of raiding his home to obtain Buckley’s property deed.
“There was nothing more I could do, the case had already been dismissed,” lied Judge James Hartmann in the official Boulder County DA’s Investigative report.
Hartmann’s perjured statement to Boulder County Chief Deputy District Attorney Catrina Weigel fails on multiple points. For Hartmann to have stated, “There was nothing I could do” is patently false. Hartman is known to have been in possession of evidence of Fraud Upon the Court. Buckley’s civil case was dismissed with prejudice on July 22, 2010, Hartmann received the evidence package, as obtained from (Fmr.) Colorado Division of Labor & Employment Director Ellen Golombek on April 4, 2011 (per his sworn testimony), and should have declared the Judgment Void at that time, and sought an arrest warrant for the Defendants and their attorney. On April 19, 2013 now criminally complicit James Francis Hartmann appointed (Ret.) Judge Daniel Maus to preside over the continuing matter. So, after the case was dismissed Judge James Hartmann DID, “do something”: he attacked!
The Defendants’ new attorney, Jacques Ruda demanded disclosures: financial statements, tax records, the deed to Buckley’s house, etc., and Hartmann’s subordinate was only too happy to comply with his boss’ orders. Buckley refused to comply with the VOID orders of the corrupt Court. Buckley’s home was raided, and he was incarcerated in July, 2013.
Under State and Federal law, a mere trifling inconvenience for corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Hartmann, a Judgment is a void judgment if court that rendered judgment lacked jurisdiction of the subject matter, or of the parties, or acted in a manner inconsistent with due process, Fed. Rules Civ. Proc., Rule 60(b)(4), 28 U.S.C.A.; U.S.C.A. Const. Amend. 5 – Klugh v. U.S., 620 F.Supp. 892 (D.S.C. 1985).
Judge James Hartmann, in violation of C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act, illegally stripped Buckley of the Due Process Right to prosecute his accrued wage case before the Court. Further, Hartmann spent two years concealing, aiding, abetting, and compounding the multiple felony acts of the Defendants, and their criminally complicit attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin.
A vote in November to retain Weld County Colorado 19th Judicial District Chief Judge James Hartmann is a vote for a KNOWN FELON. Conceals, aids, abets, and compounds Wage Theft, Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant, First Degree Perjury, Forgery, and more. Vote, “NO” on Retention, November 6, 2018.
