Caught at Age 52 Aiding & Abetting Felony Theft, Felony Attempt To Influence a Public Servant, Forgery, Perjury, and Obstruction, Colorado Judicial Branch – 19th Judicial District Weld County Chief Judge James Hartmann Wages Years-long War Against Longmont, CO Man to Save His Career.
Greeley, CO Colorado Judicial Branch – 19th Judicial District- In 2011, approximately 20 years before mandatory retirement at the age of 72, Weld County District Court Chief Judge James Francis Hartmann, was CAUGHT aiding and abetting multiple felonies committed by Longmont, CO homeowner Craig Buckley’s former employers, Dream Stone, Inc.
At an annual salary estimated to be in the range of $180,000 – $190,000, James Hartmann was projected to receive nearly $4 million dollars in gross salary, not including a hefty taxpayayer funded pension after retirement.
Judge James Hartmann reportedly stated, “I wasn’t about to let some pissant construction flunkie destroy my life, so I destroyed his.”
Buckley, who had filed a wage theft claim against his former employers in the Weld County District Court Colorado Judicial Branch – 19th Judicial District, seeking accrued wages, web design fees, and applicable penalties, among other secondary causes of action, was illegally, and in violation of his 14th Amendment Due Process Rights, stripped by Judge James Hartmann of the right to seek an award of those wages under the Colorado wage Act, on June 17, 2010.
The problem? Judge James Hartmann’s fraudulent and malicious ruling was unsupported by Statutory authority: specifically:
Colorado Wage Claim Act: C.R.S. 8-4-110(2), which stipulates:
(2) Any person claiming to be aggrieved by violation of any provisions of this article or regulations prescribed pursuant to this article may file suit in any court having jurisdiction over the parties without regard to exhaustion of any administrative remedies.
Judge James Hartmann had violated Buckley’s Due Process Rights under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, and had done so on a mere unsupported allegation by the employers’ attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, that the Court lacked jurisdiction to hear Buckley’s claim, because the matter was before the Colorado Division of Labor. This was not the case.
During the same seven day time period, the employers, and their criminally complicit defense attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin, were simultaneously swearing to the Colorado Division of Labor that the administrative agency did not have jurisdiction over Buckley’s wage claim, because the matter was before the Weld County District Court.
Buckley recalls, ” This jag-off Hartmann’s so-called ‘Orders’ were just wildly, flagrantly illegal, and in defiance of Statutory authority. After I had rightfully challenged the subject-matter jurisdiction of the Court and was ignored, I just decided I was done with his shit, and flatly refused to comply with him, or his ‘sham’ Court. That’s when he perceived he dismissed the case, and slapped all these liens on my home, and began his attacks”.
James Hartmann dismissed Buckley’s civil case with prejudice, awarding roughly $20,000.00 in attorneys’ fees to the former employers: employers whom, in fact owed Buckley money.
A sworn confession of the Class 4 felony Attempt to Influence a Public Servant by Dream Stone, Inc. Vice President Ronald R. Murphy would be obtained April 7, 2011 during a restraining order hearing before Weld County Court Judge John Briggs.
According to Judge James Hartmann’s sworn testimony before the Boulder County District Court, Hartmann received irrefutable evidence of the crime on, or about April 4, 2011 from Buckley. James Hartmann had made a conscious decision to conceal the crimes, and wage a years-long attack against Buckley, his family, and his property.
What was Judge James Hartmann to do? Psychopaths do not admit error, or take responsibility, or feel remorse, compassion, or responsibility. Psychopaths attack!
It was too late now. It was to late for Judge James Hartmann to change course; to now begin complying with the law. James Hartmann had been acting in criminal conspiracy with the employers’ defense attorney, Daniel T. Goodwin for nearly two years, and there was no turning back.
