NM Supreme Court Overrules District Judge, EIB Will Continue Greenhouse Gas Proceedings

SANTA FE, N.M.— The New Mexico Supreme Court overruled a district judge’s decision Monday that stopped the Environmental Improvement Board (EIB) from considering a regulatory proposal to limit greenhouse gas emissions.  The Court ordered Judge William G. W. Shoobridge of Lovington, NM, to vacate his April decision that the EIB had no authority to consider the petition, to dissolve the preliminary injunction that halted the EIB proceedings, and to dismiss the case.

“This is a tremendous and deserved victory for democracy and the administration of justice in New Mexico,” stated Bruce Frederick, staff attorney of the New Mexico Environmental Law Center, representing New Energy Economy, a Santa Fe non-profit. “The Court’s ruling allows EIB to fully consider the scientific evidence and to learn about all issues surrounding climate change.  It also ensures the public will have a seat at the table.” Frederick argued before the Supreme Court, in a packed courtroom, that a Lovington District Court Judge had no jurisdiction or cause to stop EIB’s pending administrative proceeding. Eric Miller of the Attorney General’s Office represented the EIB and also argued that Judge Shoobridge’s decision should be overruled.
