Channel 9, I am disgusted that your crap on Manzanares didnt teach you that this is BS, and what people do on their OWN time with thier OWN money is no one's business. I am ashamed I even read this stupid article.. when are we going to get that these are human beings, and your callousness is telling of your news team.

There are a lot more public officials who are vulnerable to blackmail than there are probably who would actually take a cash bribe. As the judicial code of conduct above implies, a judge has a responsibility to make sure that he or she can't be blackmailed.
Gee - in court at least twice over your personal choices. Let's take an indepth look at YOUR life. Is there a chance YOU may be making poor choices???

That's too bad. His x-wife is a fairly attractive woman. And he was willing to trade her for some sleeze in a strip club? What's up with that?

Now Kay, it's obvious that you have run afoul of the law. If you were in jail it's because you deserved to be there. No judge is going to send someone to jail without a good cause. it's obvious that you have a personal ax to grind and are trying to do it through this forum. Let it go.

Dear 9Wants to know,

Who do you think you are? This entire story is pure garbage. Why not find out about, and cover the drugs and gangs that are turning Denver into a violent toilet. You people do not deserve the bandwidth or frequency spectrum you occupy with your site and your joke of a TV station. Just think, once the dems reinstate the "fairness doctrine" we can go after you constantly. Have fun. As for Judge Nottingham, the next time you go to the Diamond Cabaret, will you take me?

You deserved it. The sentence should ave been ten years. In fact, we should find you to night and return you to jail. 98% of the population never sees the inside of a court room. How could you be so unlucky?

Yes this is NEWS because this so called judge who thinks of himself as the ruler of law is nothing more than a pervert. I'm sick of our legal system when judges and appointees of the court think they have the moral high ground to pass judgement on everyone else. WAKE UP PEOPLE, our entire system is corrupt. What is LAW?, a way to control the masses by the privileged few who control the power, money, and government. Smoke em all!

Let's see, several years ago, Paula Woodward ran across a few guys misusing the worker's comp system, played it up big, and the state legislature turned Colorado's worker's comp system into crap.
Now, just days after a distinguished federal judge presides over a trial in which a local big-name CEO got royally nailed, Paula Woodward starts playing up big juicy details from the judges's private life revealed in a divorce case. Nobody ever looks good from the ex's point of view in a divorce case.
I wonder what Paula's ties to the judge's ex-wife and/or Mr. Nacchio are?

Since Kay decided to open this can of worms, maybe she would like to fill in a few of the missing details. Exactly how many of your neighbors was it that you filed lawsuits against (without a lawyer) that cost them over $100,000 dollars in legal fees to defend. Frivolous lawsuits, that got thrown out, but people had to hire lawyers to fight. Did you forget it was Nottingham that offered you the deal to get out of jail if you would agree to drop the pending lawsuits? Did you forget you pulled a "no-show" and were charged with failure to appear...that is why Nottingham found you in contempt of court.

Kay, this little "hobby" of yours (filing lawsuits) has cost innocent people thousands of dollars and tied up valuable court time that could have been used to prosecute people that have actually committed real crimes. Stay in Wisconsin (if that is where you still are), you wore out your welcome in this part of the country.

Before you decide to post anything else here, take a few seconds to "Google" your own name.

If anything, you should be able to empathize with Judge Nottingham, the press was not very charitable with you when you were having a "lapse in judgement".

To 9News, why the heck are you still trying to push this as a real news item? I'm disgusted at this point.
The article mentioned that, he used his work computer to access a web site that was a 'portal' to porn sites. Fine and dandy, this 9News forum could be considered a portal also because of links to the exact same sites!
9News, post an apology, you crossed the line.

The simple fact is that being an appointed Federal Judge means following the code of conduct that he agreed to. "Public confidence in the judiciary is eroded by irresponsible or improper conduct by judges. A judge must avoid all impropriety and appearance of impropriety. A judge must expect to be the subject of constant public scrutiny. A judge must therefore accept restrictions that might be viewed as burdensome by the ordinary citizen and should do so freely and willingly. The prohibition against behaving with impropriety or the appearance of impropriety applies to both the professional and personal conduct of a judge." He chose to tarnish this code with his behavior. Therefore he should not be ignored as to his responsibility to judge others. I think he should resign his position and appologize to the public.

My former neighbor, Jane Bennett’s, bills were paid by TIG Insurance, which insured her lawyer Randall Klauzer, who got Judge Garrecht to say that I “molested” her, so that she and the police could run us out of town. However, I never was alone with Jane Bennett, she said under oath that I hadn’t been following her, there was no offensive touching, and I hadn’t called her in years. I claimed Bennett's conspiracy, malicious injunction, was criminal extortion and her lawyer, Traci Van Pelt, at McConnnell Siderious, who also represented Randall Klauzer, didn’t claim that their acts weren't extortion. Van Pelt didn’t dispute a single one of my listed facts. Van Pelt didn’t claim that the Bennetts, the City of Steamboat, and Klauzer & Tremaine didn’t extort us. David Brougham, Kevin Bennett’s lawyer, didn’t dispute that Kevin Bennett was at one time a cocaine dealer nor that he threatened to shoot someone who wanted to buy my lot. David Brougham, Anthony Lettunich (Steamboat’s part time city attorney) and Magistrate Schlatter (who Judge Nottingham was supposed to make sure did things according to the books), billed for a three way secret long distance ex parte conference. In fact, the defense billed for 25 secret ex parte conferences. This news about Judge Nottingham, if its true, shows that the defense could have got him to go along with suspending the rules of civil procedure by threatening to tell his wife or the press about his porno and strip club problems. Judge Nottingham’s order said he was dismissing my lawsuit because I am a bad writer and my claims were “legally twisted”. That’s not a reason in law. That’s a reason that could have been purchased or blackmailed.

"The sentence should have been ten years"??? The sentence for what? I wasn't even accused of lying about a single sentence. Is Judge Nottingham going to sentence Paula Woodward for putting up this blog? The essence of law is that it is the same for all people. George Washington approved the right of citizens to represent themselves in court and it is legal for everyone in the U.S. including me (see U.S.C. code title 28 section 1654).

My choices are my business if they are legal and I am not running for office or a judge. I can't be blackmailed to put people in jail without accusing them of breaking a law.

There are codes of conduct for judges and lawyers to protect our rights as citizens. We have a right to rely on our judges following the rules exactly so that they aren't blackmailed. The rules Judge Nottingham agreed to are:

A judge must expect to be the subject of constant public scrutiny. A judge must therefore accept restrictions that might be viewed as burdensome by the ordinary citizen and should do so freely and willingly. The prohibition against behaving with impropriety or the appearance of impropriety applies to both the professional and personal conduct of a judge.

So Judge Nottingham agreed in writing that he expected to be scrutinized and can't keep his job if he does certain things.
