DENVER — Colorado Attorney General John Suthers praised Gov. Bill Ritter’s selection of Deputy Attorney General Monica M. Marquez to fill a vacancy on the Colorado Supreme Court occasioned by the resignation of Chief Justice Mary Mullarkey.
“Gov. Ritter was faced with a difficult decision between three highly qualified candidates for the state’s highest court. In selecting Deputy Attorney General Marquez, the governor has made an excellent appointment to the Colorado Supreme Court,” Suthers said. “Monica is one of the brightest attorneys I have worked with in my long career in public service. Her clear, concise writing and sharp legal mind will make her an outstanding addition to the Colorado Supreme Court.”
