New Energy Economy, Inc. v. Martinez
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 01/26/2011 Opinion Download Opinion issued and writ of mandamus issued ordering publication of regulations. The New Mexico Supreme Court held that Governor Susana Martinez’s administration violated the state Constitution by blocking regulations designed to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions from being published as codified in the New Mexico State Register. The court issued a writ of mandamus against the state records administrator for failing to publish finalized regulations concerning a state cap on greenhouse gas emissions. Governor Martinez had imposed a 90-day delay in the implementation of the regulations to allow for a review to determine whether they were business friendly.
