Honorable Rex A. Shaw

Retention year: 2004
Recommendation: Retain

The Eighth Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance unanimously recommends that Judge Rex A. Shaw BE RETAINED. The vote of the Commission was 10-0.

Judge Shaw was appointed the County Judge for Jackson County in September 1985. Judge Shaw is not an attorney. He has served as the part-time Jackson County Judge for over 18 and one-half years. Judge Shaw's caseload is primarily traffic, civil, and criminal.

The Commission reviewed the 2004 Judicial Performance Survey data from attorneys and non-attorneys prepared by the Colorado State Commission on Judicial Performance. The survey evaluated case management, application and knowledge of the law, communications, demeanor, and diligence. The Commission reviewed a written self-evaluation and interviewed Judge Shaw. The Commission also interviewed attorneys and non-attorneys having professional contact with the judge, conducted a public hearing, and made courtroom observations.

All sources of information recommend Judge Shaw's retention. The Commission believes the people of Jackson County are fortunate to have such a capable and qualified person serving as their County Judge. Judge Shaw continues to gain additional judicial knowledge and experience. This judge spends a great deal of effort researching case law and attending continuing legal education. He confers with other judges when necessary.

The Commission is impressed with Judge Shaw's fairness, his desire to further his knowledge of the law, his positive concern for everyone in his courtroom, his service to his community, and his demonstrated ability as an excellent judge and recommends his retention.
