Colorado Court of Appeals
Honorable Peter H. Ney
Retention Year: 1990
Judicial Performance Commission’s recommendation: Should Be Retained.
Judge Ney received his undergraduate degree from the Philadelphia Museum College of Art and received his law degree from the University of Denver. He was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 1966. Prior to his admission to the bar, Ney worked for Philco Corporation and the Martin Company in the space program. He also served in the U.S. Army. Ney was in private practice from this admission to the Bar until his appointment to the Court of Appeals in 1988.
Ney was praised by surveyed attorneys for his fairness. The attorneys and trial court judges were impressed with Ney’s ability to decide issues and to promptly render opinions in cases. Ney feels lawyers need to give back to the community and his service to the Court of Appeals is part of his public service.
