The essence of a judge is that he or she can rule on a law objectively and fairly. That’s why University of Colorado professor Melissa Hart is a bad choice to replace outgoing Colorado State Supreme Court Justice Alison Eid, who is leaving her post for a new appointment on the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. Eid is replacing Justice Neil Gorsuch, who now sits on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Eid and Gorsuch have been model justices. Hart? Not so much. Here are a few photos from Hart’s Facebook page that lead us to believe she might not be up for the job.

We must take sides? Must we? As a judge? Really? If liberals want an activist judge, it would appear that they’ve found one, but it’s so awkward to be so blatant about it.
