The city is hiring an interim Municipal Court judge to deal with a case involving an animal control issue.
Last week, the City Council voted unanimously for Santa Fe-area attorney Santiago Juarez, a former Las Vegas resident, to preside over the case.
Mayor Alfonso Ortiz said the city wanted a person not familiar with the community and who wouldn’t bring any pre-conceived notions to the case.
The case involves Carlos Sandoval, who was cited for not restraining his dog during an alleged attack. He was also cited for not licensing his canine.
