Materials on judicial opinion writing, 2002
Scope and Contents
This series contains documents related to Justice Hobbs' service on the Colorado Supreme Court, though few actually concern court cases. The series is arranged into three categories, Appointment, Justice Robert B. Lee, and General. The first category entirely relates to Hobbs' appointment to the court in 1996, being primarily congratulatory cards and letters, along with newsletter and newspaper articles. The second category contains water-related files which Justice Robert B. Lee (who served 1969 to 1983) appears to have given to Hobbs. They largely have to do with water courts, legislation, and various Colorado Supreme Court cases. Most of the latter concern federal reserved water rights. The most substantial set of documents in the final category, General, is a set of files from the Water Court Committee, which Hobbs chaired in 2008. The category also includes a few court opinions authored by Hobbs, a self-evaluation, results of assessment tests, play scripts, and scattered correspondence. Also included is a file regarding a complaint (ultimately dismissed) against Hobbs brought before the Commission on Judicial Discipline. Each category is arranged alphabetically by folder title.
