Black and White Justice - Denver Federal Judge Applies Race-Based Standards to Identical Allegations

LogoDenver federal judge Christine M. Arguello applies a different standard of justice for black businessmen then she does for white ones. According to an October 2, 2013 Law360 article, Judge Arguello dismissed a case against top white Delta Petroleum executives who were accused of defrauding investors by misrepresenting Delta's financial position to artificially inflate stock prices. (Dist. Colo. nos. 1:12-cv-01038 & 1:12-cv-01521). But just a year earlier Judge Arguello imposed harsh prison sentences of 7 to 11 years to corporate executives of the IRP Solutions Corporation (known as the "IRP6") who were accused of misrepresenting their contract status with staffing companies to receive unsecured credit for hourly wages paid to temporary contract employees to work on law enforcement-related software projects (Dist. of Colo. case no. 09-CR-00266-CMA). Bear in mind that the staffing companies provided their own staffing services contract (with their payment terms) to IRP executives who signed the contract to receive services.

Colorado Federal Judge and Prosecutor Entangled in Misconduct Cover-Up

LogoIn 2014, federal Judge Christine Arguello, Colorado U.S. Attorney John Walsh and his underling Assistant United States Attorney Matthew T.

Denver Federal Judge Defies Appellate Court Order

LogoOn January 23, 2019, based on a motion filed by the Colorado Springs Fellowship Church (view motion online at bit.ly/2Ntk3U9), the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ordered federal judge Christine M. Arguello to unseal and make public, records and transcripts from a criminal proceeding where it was alleged she secretly used her court to conduct religious attacks and persecution against CSFC's highly respected Pastor, Rose Banks who was not the defendant and has no criminal record. After nearly six months of failing to comply with the order, New York Attorney Bernard Kleinman petitioned the 10th Circuit to issue another order directing Judge Arguello "to do what [she] has already been directed to do." Kleinman also asked, that because of Judge Arguello's continuing recalcitrance and "bias" against Pastor Banks that she be recused, and the case be assigned to another judge. "As of September 2019 (eight months after the order), the miscreant Judge Arguello continues her defiance, while a recreant 10th Circuit refuses to hold her accountable or assign the case to another judge," says Cliff Stewart, CSFC's Chairman of the Board.

Banks of the Colorado Springs Fellowship Church (CSFC).
