DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers released the following statement today about Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey’s announcement that she will step down from the Colorado Supreme Court.
“Chief Justice Mullarkey has served the state of Colorado with distinction both on the court and during her time with the Colorado Attorney General’s Office,” Suthers said. “While we have not agreed on every issue, I salute the dedication of the Chief Justice to public service and her work to make the judicial system in Colorado more accessible and open to the public, such as through the Court in the Community Program. She also has done outstanding work in making the Ralph L. Carr Justice Center a reality.”
Mullarkey served as the head of the Office of the Attorney General’s appellate section under Attorney General J.D. MacFarlane. She later served as Colorado Solicitor General.
