ALBUQUERQUE — Albuquerque’s city attorney says the city can continue seizing vehicles of suspected drunken drivers because a New Mexico Supreme Court order applied to only one case.

However, City Attorney David Tourek said the Supreme Court’s order clearly applied to only the vehicle in one case, the Albuquerque Journal reported.
