Colorado Supreme Court to extend search for next State Court Administrator

Thursday, May 18, 2017

DENVER – The Colorado Supreme Court announced today that it has decided to extend its search for Colorado’s next State Court Administrator.

“Earlier this week, the Court interviewed several strong candidates for this very important position,” Chief Justice Nancy Rice said. “Each of the candidates presented the Court with diverse skill sets and career experiences.”

The Court has decided, however, that the Colorado Judicial Branch’s short-term needs will best be met by appointing the Clerk of the Colorado Supreme Court and Colorado Court of Appeals, Chris Ryan, to serve as the acting State Court Administrator from July 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017.

Before the end of Ryan’s term, the Court will again consider the appointment of a State Court Administrator. At that time, the candidates interviewed by the Court will continue to be given consideration, and additional applicants will also be welcome to apply.

An announcement regarding the application process will be issued before the end of the year. The vacancy has been created by the retirement of State Court Administrator Gerald A. Marroney who will retire on June 30, 2017, after 27 years of service to the Colorado Judicial Branch.
