A critic of Bernalillo County’s paid sick leave proposal is now suing the county alleging improper denial of documents related to the legislation.
The libertarian leaning Rio Grande Foundation filed a lawsuit this week in state District Court in Albuquerque claiming the county violated the New Mexico Inspection of Public Records Act by providing an incomplete response to requests for communications related to the legislation.
The foundation filed requests on June 21 and July 1 seeking paid leave-related records from Commissioners Maggie Hart Stebbins, Debbie O’Malley and Charlene Pyskoty, according to the lawsuit. The county has so far provided 10 emails and no text messages, according to the lawsuit.
