Firm prevails in lawsuit establishing that The University of New Mexico Foundation’s records are subject to public records laws

On May 24, 2018, firm client Daniel Libit, a journalist that operates nmfishbowl.com, prevailed in his lawsuit against The University of New Mexico Foundation, Inc., establishing that the Foundation’s records are subject to disclosure under New Mexico’s public records laws.  The lawsuit, which is the first of its kind in New Mexico, continues a national trend towards transparency for public university fundraising practices.  Firm attorney Nicholas T. Hart argued the motion for summary judgment leading to the ruling, and along with firm partners John W. Boyd and David H. Urias, represents Mr. Libit in a series of lawsuits seeking to open up the University of New Mexico’s fundraising activities to public inspection.  See coverage of the lawsuit and ruling here and here.
