The Colorado Judicial Branch, with more than 300 judges and 3,500 support staff members, is centrally administered by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. To assist the Chief Justice, the Supreme Court appoints the State Court Administrator (SCA). Each of the State's 22 Judicial Districts also has a district administrator and a Chief Probation Officer, and each of the 64 counties has a Clerk of Court.
The Clerk of the Supreme Court plans, organizes and supervises the administration of the Supreme Court Clerk's office and other administrative staff for the Supreme Court. The clerk monitors the case flow of matters pending before the court, together with screening cases for jurisdictional problems and identifying routine and complex cases to ensure the efficient use of resources.
