Judge resigns after referring to colleague as ‘the little Mexican’

An appeals court judge in Colorado who admitted referring to a fellow jurist as “the little Mexican” has resigned from the bench. Judge Laurie A. Booras has agreed to step down on Jan. 31 after the Colorado Commission on Judicial Discipline recommended her removal on three judicial code violations, according to a letter she sent to Colorado Supreme Court Justice Nathan Coats that was obtained by the Denver Post.
