Denver Judge Says She’s Been Approached About Supreme Court Seat « The Washington Independent

Ernest Luning, of TWI’s sister site, The Colorado Independent, has the details:

A Denver federal judge who grew up in southern Colorado confirms she could be under consideration for nomination to the Supreme Court, the Pueblo Chieftain reports. U.S. District Court Judge Christine Arguello, named to the bench last fall, tops a list of potential dark horse nominees to replace retiring Justice David Souter, The Colorado Independent noted Sunday. [...]

Arguello, a 1977 graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder and 1980 graduate of Harvard Law School, was managing senior associate counsel at the CU-Boulder before being named a federal judge by President George W. Bush. Arguello was a former deputy Colorado attorney general to Democrat Ken Salazar, who supported her nomination to the bench last year when he was still a senator. Former Sen. Wayne Allard, a Republican, also backed Arguello.

The Associated Press notes that Arguello is the federal judge presiding over a First Amendment lawsuit filed by a Denver man who says the Secret Service abridged his free speech rights when he approached then-Vice President Dick Cheney in Beaver Creek in 2006. Officers arrested Steven Howards after he “lightly” touched Cheney at a conservative conference and told him the administration’s policy in Iraq was “disgusting.”

Luning notes that Arguello is the first Hispanic judge on the U.S. District Court for Colorado. Marc Ambinder reported yesterday that President Obama will likely announce his pick next week.
