Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer has stated, “Justice delayed- is justice denied”. Really?
Did corrupt Weld County District Court Chief Judge James F. Hartmann have the right to strip me of all evidence, and the Due Process right in violation of C.R.S. 8-4-110(2) of the Colorado Wage Act to prosecute my wage theft claim before the Weld County District Court, mere hours before I had been commanded (without good cause shown on the record of the Court) to comply with Subpoena Duces Tecum?
The answer is, “NO”.
My former employers had sworn simultaneously before both the Weld County District Court, and the Colorado Division of Labor, that neither had jurisdiction over my accrued wage claim, because the matter was before the OTHER, constituting Class 4 Felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant.
Colorado government authorities would spend the next 8 years retaliating against me, to conceal and avenge Judge James Hartmann’s complicity in this crime.
With full knowledge and evidence of Weld County District Court Judge James Hartmann’s involvement in multiple felony acts, on December 24, 2015, I conferred with Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer regarding Judge James Hartmann’s violation of my rights under the Colorado Wage Act. Singer was the legislator responsible for the 2014 revisions to the Wage Act, and spoke with authority on the subject. I don’t think he realized, at the time, that I was recording him. When presented with the irrefutable evidence of crime, as shown on the record of the Court contrasted with the confidential interdepartmental memoranda I had demanded from former CDLE Director Ellen Golombek, he at first vowed to help: then, he fell silent.

Realizing that a good number of his buddies were now criminally complicit, including Colorado State Senator John Cooke, Colorado House Rep. Perry Buck’s slimeball husband U.S. Congressman Ken Buck, and Colorado House Rep. Alec Garnett’s daddy, former Boulder County District Attorney Stan Garnett, Singer backed off, even after previously vowing to advocate for me.
The Colorado Wage Act (C.R.S. 8-4-101 et seq.) requires Colorado employers to pay employees their earned wages in a timely manner: just not in Corrupt Judge James Hartmann’s ‘Sham” 19th Judicial District Court.
What does the Colorado Department of Labor & Employment Say?
Vacation as Wages or Compensation
“Colorado wage law provides that vacation pay, earned in accordance with the terms of any agreement, is classified as wages or compensation. If an employer provides paid vacation for an employee, the employer shall pay upon separation from employment all vacation pay earned and determinable in accordance with the terms of any agreement between the employer and the employee.”
What do our Colorado Revised Statutes say?
When an employee is discharged, timely pay them what is earned, vested, and determinable whether they quit or were terminated involuntarily, C.R.S. §§ 8-4-101, -109, -110;
8-4-110. Disputes – fees.
(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.
This section explicitly creates a civil remedy to enable employees to pursue their claims for past due wages. Lambdin v. Dist. Ct. of Arapahoe Cty., 903 P.2d 1126 (Colo. 1995).
What does Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer say?
The Colorado Division of Labor, prior to the 2014 revisions of law, had no authority to compel an employer to pay wages due upon termination of employment, “Prior to the revisions of law, the DOL had little more authority than to write the employers a ‘nasty letter’, and that worked maybe half of the time.
What did lying attorney Daniel T. Goodwin say in his Response to Motion for Settlement Conference?
June 7, 2010
“Further, 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. The Plaintiffs claims must be resolved by the proper administrative agency. Stacks v. The Industrial Commission, et al., 65 Colo. 20; 174 P. 588; (1918).”
What did corrupt Weld County Chief Judge James Hartmann Say?
June 17, 2010
“Whether Defendants owe Plaintiff payment for accrued vacation pay is an issue before the CDLE and not this court.”
July 22, 2010
“Plaintiff did not file a reply to Defendant’s response to the motion for settlement conference; therefore,
Defendant’s assertion that the vacation pay claim was still pending before the CDLE was not refuted.”
What do the Courts say?
Stacks v. The Industrial Commission, fraudulently cited June 7, 2010 by Daniel T. Goodwin pertains only to the Workmen’s Compensation Act, applied by the Industrial Claims Appeals Office, NOT Wage Law, as applied by the Colorado Division of Labor. No published opinions pertain to the CDLE. Daniel T. Goodwin, and Judge James Hartmann deliberately, and with extreme malice, misapplied the law.
Judge James Hartmann’s fraudulent allegations that I had a pending claim before the Division of Labor, even if true, FAIL.
The Colorado Court of Appeals has held that an employee was not required to exhaust his administrative remedies under the state statute before bringing suit under the FLSA seeking to recover overtime wages. See Laurence v. State of Colo. 910 P.2d 73, 74 (Colo. App. 1995)(While the administrative proceeding was pending, plaintiff filed suit in the district court, seeking to recover the same overtime wages under both ordinary contract principles and under the FLSA…”). Under the FLSA, an award of liquidated damages is mandatory except where an employer shows it acted in good faith. See Greene v. Safeway Stores, Inc., 210 P.3d 1237, 1245 (10th Cir. 2000). In such a case, the court has discretion to award liquidated damages. Greene, 210 P.3d at 1245.”
To conceal the criminal acts of his colleagues, Colorado House Rep. Jonathan Singer is belligerently unwilling to compel government authorities to comply with the very laws HE WROTE.
