BERNALILLO — A New Mexico court has awarded an author $100,000 in a lawsuit she brought against the Lincoln County sheriff’s officials for wrongfully withholding records related to the death of legendary outlaw Billy the Kid.
But Gale Cooper of Sandia Park said Tuesday that she’s considering appealing part of the damages that were awarded last week by District Judge George Eichwald in Bernalillo.
Cooper’s legal battle with the southern New Mexico sheriff’s office started in 2007.
