NO ACCOUNTABILITY: Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Nancy Rice heads the branch that was granted the dubious honor of being one of the least transparent entities in government.

COURTING CRITICISM: Two major journalism organizations picked Colorado Judicial as a government entity with poor transparency policies.

This is the second time a top journalism organization named the state courts a finalists for an award given to organizations that are unot transparent.

Last year, Investigative Reporters and Editors named the courts as a finalist for the Golden Padlock Award, a recognition given to government agencies that prevent access to records and are not transparent.
