2013 Annual Report

ATTORNEY GENERAL JOHN W. SUTHERS

To my fellow Coloradans,

It is a great privilege to serve as your Attorney General. Since becoming Colorado’s 37th Attorney General, I have had the honor of working with hundreds of dedicated public servants at the Colorado Department of Law.

The 2013 Annual Report of the Colorado Department of Law is only a snapshot of the work we do on behalf of the people of Colorado and our clients throughout state government. From protecting Colorado’s water, to defending the state against frivolous lawsuits, the work of the Department of Law’s affects Coloradans throughout the state.

This year, the Department of Law moved into the new Ralph L. Carr Colorado Judicial Center. Upon the building’s opening, we rededicated ourselves to the task of ensuring that our nation and state remain wholly committed to the rule of law, to the constitutional principles upon which our nation was founded, and to ensuring that what transpires in this building reflects those highest ideals. Our new home inspires us to never forget the sacrifices of those who’ve gone before us.

We will continue to provide ethical representation and legal advice of the highest caliber to our client agencies and service of the highest quality to the people of
Colorado.

Sincerely,

JOHN W. SUTHERS
