A Colorado Appeals Court judge leaves the bank after becoming a fellow judge & # 39; the little Mexican & # 39; in an e-mail.
In a letter of resignation, Judge Laurie Booras agreed to resign at the end of the month after a judicial disciplinary committee had recommended her removal, according to the Denver Post.
Booras was suspended in March last year when the Denver Post revealed accusations of John Sakowicz, a man claiming to be ex-loved.
Sakowicz claimed that after he ended a decade-long affair with Booras, she stormed him and sent their love letters to his wife.

Three judges who were appointed to judge her behavior discovered that Judge Booras violated three guns of the Code of Conduct last year by sending e-mails to Sakowicz that Booras had claimed to be protected by the first amendment.
In one e-mail Booras referred to the Indian wife of her ex-husband as & # 39; the squaw & # 39; and in another e-mail she referred to another court of the court of appeal Terry Fox, a Latina, as & # 39; the little Mexican & # 39 ;.
Judge Fox testified that they are & # 39; submersible & # 39; felt when she heard that her colleague had called her that way.

She provided powerful, convincing testimonies about how to overcome obstacles throughout her life because of the prejudices of others & # 39 ;, the three judges wrote about Fox's testimony, & she never expected to be subjected racist comments from a fellow judge about the Court of Appeal. & # 39;
Booras later apologized to Fox and said she was not going to hurt you, and I understand that my words are probably … There is no reason to use the sentence. & # 39;
Nevertheless, words are the art of a court of appeal who has been trained to think about what she writes before sending a written statement in which they are included, the committee said about the apology.
Booras also revealed how they would decide on a case, weeks before they actually made the ruling, the review judges said about another violation of court canon.
Together with her dismissal, Booras had to pay $ 5442 to cover the costs of investigating her misconduct.
