Colorado has a new state Supreme Court Justice. Brian Boatright is starting his role this week. He previously served as a trial court judge in Jefferson County for more than a decade. He’s the fifth member of the seven member court appointed by a Democratic Governor, but Boatright is a Republican. KUNC’s state capitol reporter Bente Birkeland sat down with Boatright to talk about his some of his toughest cases and what he hopes to bring to the job.
