Colo. R. Civ. P. 240.2

As amended through Rule Change 2021(22), effective October 14, 2021
Rule 240.2 - Expunction of Records
(a) Expunction-Self-Executing. Except for records relating to proceedings that have (1) become public pursuant to C.R.C.P 234, et seq., (2) resulted in a finding of unauthorized practice of law, or (3) resulted in agreements, all records relating to proceedings that were dismissed without a finding of unauthorized practice of law shall be expunged from the files of the committee, the Presiding Disciplinary Judge, and Regulation Counsel three years after the end of the year in which the dismissal occurred.
(b) Definition. The terms "expunge" and "expunction" shall mean the destruction of all records or other evidence of any type, including but not limited to, the request for investigation, the response, the investigator's notes, and the report of investigation.
(c) Notice to Respondent. If proceedings conducted pursuant to these Rules (or their predecessor) were commenced, the attorney in question shall be given prompt notice of the expunction.
(d) Effect of Expunction. After expunction, the proceedings shall be deemed never to have occurred. Upon either general or specific inquiry concerning the existence of proceedings which have been expunged, the committee or the Regulation Counsel shall respond by stating that no record of the proceedings exists. The respondent in question may properly respond to any general inquiry about proceedings which have been expunged by stating that no record of the proceedings exists. The respondent in question may properly respond to any inquiry requiring reference to a specific proceeding which has been expunged by stating only that the proceeding was dismissed with no finding of unauthorized practice of law and that the record of the proceeding was expunged pursuant to this Rule. After a response is provided and is given to an inquirer, no further response to an inquiry into the nature or scope of the proceedings which have been expunged needs be made.
(e) Retention of Records. Upon written application to the committee, for good cause and with written notice to the respondent in question and opportunity to such respondent to be heard, the Regulation Counsel may request that records which would otherwise be expunged under this Rule be retained for such additional period of time, not to exceed three years, as the committee deems appropriate. The Regulation Counsel may seek further extensions of the period for which retention of the records is authorized whenever a previous application has been granted.
