The United States District Court for the District of Colorado (in case citations, D. Colo. or D. Col.) is the Federal district court whose jurisdiction is the state of Colorado. The United States Congress organized Colorado as a single judicial district on June 26, 1876, by 19 Stat. 61. The initial legislation authorized one judgeship for the District Court, and assigned the district to the Eighth Circuit. The District was reassigned to the newly-organized United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit on February 28, 1929, by 45 Stat. 1346, and appeals are taken to that Court of Appeals (except for patent claims and claims against the U.S. government under the Tucker Act, which are appealed to the Federal Circuit). Between 1954 and 1984, six new judgeships were authorized for the court, bringing the current number of judges to seven.

The United States Attorney's Office for the District of Colorado represents the United States in civil and criminal litigation in the court. The current U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado is David Gaouette.[1] Former United States Attorney Troy Eid resigned effective midnight, Friday, January 9, 2009. Eid has officially left government service to focus on his private law practice. [2]
