The Colorado Supreme Court has festooned the columns of its judicial center with gigantic Albert-Speerish orange and blue Go Broncos banners. From the Denver Post's "Colorado Supreme Court risks bias charge with $3,200 Broncos banners":
Judges aren't just any fans and should be hyperaware of appearing unbiased, said William Brunson, director of special projects at the National Judicial College in Reno, Nev. He said the banners could create a conflict of interest if a case involving the Broncos corporation, or an individual player, ever appeared before the state's high court.
But a business and legal ethics professor at the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business disagreed. He told the Denver Post that there is a gray area between a government agency endorsing the Broncos as a business, or cheering on the team and that he couldn't imagine the court changing its positions as a result of supporting the Broncos for the Super Bowl.
