From the web page of the Colorado Supreme Court:
The Hearing Board publicly censured [an attorney]. Respondent flouted the Twenty-Second Judicial District’s Administrative Order 94-03 by repeatedly faxing non-emergency pleadings for filing and by refusing to pay the fees associated with the court’s receipt and handling of those faxed pleadings. Respondent’s pattern of ignoring the court’s mandates and billing invoices, rather than pursuing available avenues to challenge or otherwise seek relief from the court’s orders, flagrantly contravened professional norms and constitutes conduct prejudicial to the administration of justice in violation of Colo. RPC 8.4(d).
The attorney is one of approximately 20 attorneys who live and practice in the district, which consists of Montezuma and Delores Counties in southwest Colorado.
