From Colorado Springs Independent:
" Retired Judge Robert Hyatt has recused himself from presiding over a hearing on allegations of ethics violations against City Councilor Helen Collins. The City Attorney's Office filed a complaint in January regarding a land transaction involving Collins and Douglas Bruce. Hyatt presided over the Colorado State Grand Jury at the time Bruce was indicted for tax evasion.
The city has committed at least $42,300 so far on legal work for the ethics case. — PZ "
