ALLARD STATEMENT ON CHIEF JUDGE NOTTINGHAM RESIGNATION
U.S. Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Colo.) issued the following statement today concerning the resignation of Chief District Judge Edward W. Nottingham:
"Judge Nottingham was known throughout Colorado as a fine jurist with the respect of his peers and I am disappointed to learn of the details of this situation," said Allard. "Our federal courts already face a backlog of cases and Judge Nottingham's resignation now increases that strain. I am hopeful that early next year the new Administration, Senator Salazar and the future Senator for Colorado will work expeditiously to fill both seats."
