Commission Opinions on Administrative Cases

View Administrative Opinions for Past Cases

After hearing appeals in administrative cases, the State Ethics Commission will publish any written final decision. These final decisions are legally binding on the parties to the administrative case before the Commission. Parties may seek judicial review of final Commission decisions by petitioning a district court for a writ of certiorari under Rule 1-075 NMRA. The Commission’s jurisdiction over administrative complaints takes effect on January 1, 2020. At present, the Commission has yet to publish a written final decision. Once the Commission begins to issue final decisions, its opinions will be posted here.
