Denver Mayor Michael Hancock Thursday announced the appointments of Andrea Eddy and Chelsea Malone as judges to the Denver County Court. The appointments will fill vacancies created by Judge Alfred Harrell and Judge Kerry Hada, who are retiring.

“Judicial appointments are some of the most important appointments an elected executive makes, and with Andrea Eddy and Chelsea Malone, I’m proud to add two exceptionally qualified and incredibly capable jurists to the bench,” Hancock said.

Eddy currently serves as a magistrate for the Denver County Court and previously served as the senior deputy district attorney for the Denver District Attorney’s Office. She is a member of the Colorado Women’s Bar Association and Colorado GLBT Bar Association and has served on the Denver County Court’s Integrated Traffic Ticketing Committee and Denver’s Child Fatality Review Board.

Malone currently serves as the principal of the Law Offices of Chelsea Malone and of counsel for the Law Offices of Fred Andrew Dunsing. She previously served as deputy state public defender for the Denver County Court. She is a member of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar, Colorado Women’s Bar Association and Asian Pacific American Bar Association.

Eddy and Malone will assume their new judicial roles effective on or before the first week of July 2016.
