Bio:
N. Reid Neureiter was appointed United States Magistrate Judge for the District of Colorado in August of 2018. For the twenty years before that he was an associate, partner, and of counsel at three Denver law firms, most recently serving as Of Counsel at Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell for six years. His practice involved all kinds of civil work, including class actions, bad faith insurance defense, medical malpractice defense, complex commercial disputes, breaches of contract, theft of trade secrets, securities fraud and employment disputes. Through his professional career, Mr. Neureiter has tried to be involved in important pro bono work, including working as a cooperating attorney for the ACLU of Colorado where he was lead counsel on two important cases, including on behalf of an Adams State professor banned from his campus without due process and a Hispanic tax preparer who had her clients' files seized in violation of the Constitutional prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures. Prior to his appointment as a Magistrate Judge, Mr. Neureiter was involved for many years in efforts to improve the practice by lawyers in federal court. He served for five years on the Board of Directors of the Faculty of Federal Advocates (including serving as its President), an organization intended to better relations and communication between the federal bench and bar. In addition, he served for six years on the Committee on Conduct (including two years as chair) which is the entity which investigates violations of the ethical rules in the District of Colorado. Mr. Neureiter moved to Colorado in 1996 from Washington, D.C. to be on the defense team for one of the defendants in the Oklahoma City Bombing death penalty case. He served as court-appointed counsel in that capacity for two years. Before moving to Colorado, Mr. Neureiter was an associate at the Williams and Connolly firm in Washington D.C. where he had clerked for United States District Judge Stanley Sporkin. Mr. Neureiter graduated with High Honors from the University of Texas School of Law and also received a joint Masters in Public Affairs degree from the Lyndon Johnson School at the University of Texas. He holds a B.A. with honors in political science and minor in economics with honors from Swarthmore College. Before law school, Mr. Neureiter worked for two years as a junior economist for the Budget Committee of the United States House of Representatives. Mr. Neureiter is an accomplished sports, wildlife and landscape photographer.
