THe Colorado Supreme Court and Court of Appeals are housed in the Ralph L. Carr Judicial Center in Denver. It’s one of 57 buildings enrolled in the Denver City Energy Project.

The state judicial department is being rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct and discrimination dating back years and by claims that a former employee was given a $2.5 million contract in exchange for her silence. That’s a claim the judicial department denies. Last week, the state supreme court released a key memo in the case and promised to hire an independent investigator. The state auditor is also investigating. Denver Post reporter David Migoya's recent reporting has helped prompt the investigations.
