State Supreme Court Outcomes: Colorado and Oregon

Two more states with intermediate appellate courts. You may wonder why I think that’s important, while KF thinks whether the judges are elected or appointed is important. We’re working on it.

In Oregon, tribal interests win at a 40 percent rate.

In Colorado, tribal interests win at a 67 percent rate.

Here are the Oregon cases:

State v. Kurtz (2011) — W

State ex rel. Dewberry v. Kulongoski (2009) — L

Esquiro v. Dept. of Revenue (1998) — L

Chance v. Coquille Indian Tribe (1998) — W

Warm Springs Forest Products v. Employee Benefits Ins. Co. (1986) — L

2 wins, 3 losses

Here are the Colorado cases:

Southern Ute Tribe v. King Consolidated Ditch (2011) — L

Cash Advance v. State ex rel. Suthers (2010) — W

Matter of J.C.T. (2007) — W

B.H. v. People (2006) — W

Custody of C.C.R.S. (1995) — L

People v. Morgan (1990) — W

4 wins, 2 losses

    I’m not sure it’ll turn out to be important, but I’m curious nonetheless.
    For the record–
    Colorado has a hybrid system, where the justices are initially appointed and then face a non-partisan election.
    Oregon has an elected justices who serve 6 year terms.
