A Las Vegas police officer is seeking more than $250,000 in damages from San Miguel County for releasing documents about him that he contends should have been kept secret.
On July 8, Officer Martin Salazar filed a tort claims notice with the county, which is a warning that he may sue.
He stated that he has suffered from emotional distress since stories have appeared in the Optic about county jailers’ allegations against him.
A top county official counters that he and his employees have followed the law.
