The results of the evaluations also provide judges with information that can be used to improve their professional skills as judicial officers. Each judicial district’s performance commission consists of several attorneys and non-attorneys from across the political and ideological spectrum.
The Judicial Performance Commission for the Ninth Judicial District serves the three counties—Pitkin, Garfield, and Rio Blanco—located within that district. The Ninth Judicial District has five district court judges and several magistrates and county court judges.
