My Colorado voting guide: No on Amendment 40 – Term limits for judges

By | November 2, 2006

Amendment 40 would establish term limits for Colorado Supreme Court and Appellate justices. While I am in favor of term limits in both the executive and legislative branches, I think it’s a very bad idea to do so in the judicial branch. Justices become more effective at their job the longer they are on the bench. Forcing justices to step down after four years will create a major lack of institutional knowledge on our high courts.

That is not a good idea, in my opinion. NO!
