LAW WEEK COLORADO
Editor’s Note: This is the latest in an ongoing series of profiles featuring the state’s judges from various levels and jurisdictions.
U.S. District Court Judge Christine Arguello’s career has largely been a cacophony of ringing phones.
The phone rang with an offer in 1999 to take a second look at the University of Colorado Law School for a professorship position. It rang again shortly after at a neighbor’s house when then-newly elected Colorado Attorney General Ken Salazar wanted Arguello to serve in his ranks. And it rang once more eight years later with a U.S. Senator on the other end asking if she was interested in becoming a federal judge.
“I’m in my eighth year, and I’m not even close to being bored,” Arguello said.
