Part-time justice court judges standing for retention in 2016 are required to meet three minimum performance standards adopted by the judicial branch and enacted by the legislature.
Judge Hartmann met these standards:
- She participated annually in no less than 30 hours of continuing legal education for each year of her current term;
- She held no cases under advisement for more than two months; and
- She has not been the subject of any public reprimands issued by the Judicial Conduct Commission or the Utah Supreme Court during her term of office.
Based solely on compliance with these standards, the commission recommends retention for Judge Hartmann.
