State must pay ACLU $90K
New Mexico has lost a long-running lawsuit over legal fees in a public records case.
The New Mexican reports that state taxpayers will now be responsible for $90,000 in legal fees for the American Civil Liberties Union.
The state Court of Appeals on Wednesday upheld a 2014 decision that the ACLU is entitled to more than $87,000 in legal fees from the Secretary of State’s Office, a number that doesn’t include the fees incurred by the appeals process.
