The district court judgeship was created by the resignation of Judge Herbert Stern III, effective June 1, 2015. Nominees include Greenberg Traurig shareholder David Goldberg, a litigation attorney and Greenberg Traurig shareholder; Jay Grant, deputy state public defender; and Christine Washburn, a deputy prosecutor in the Denvers District Attorney’s office.
