***The Colorado Supreme Court would like to recognize all Colorado law firms and solo practitioners who in the calendar year 2007 achieved the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct 6.1 goal of 50 hours of pro bono legal services on the average, pro-rating for part-time attorneys, primarily for the indigent and/organizations that serve the indigent.  The word “primarily” means a “substantial majority” of the pro bono hours were for indigent persons and/or organizations serving the indigent, as set forth in RPC 6.1.   If your firm met the goal in 2007, you may simply say that in an e-mail to Justice Hobbs at gregory.hobbs@judicial.state.co.us by Friday March 7, 2008.  The court is planning a recognition ceremony in its courtroom at a date to be determined, and will post the list of recognized firms on its Colorado Judicial Branch web page, as in the past.  Best regards.  Justice Greg Hobbs
