We identified 1 publicly reported settlement that resulted in $218,000.00 in monetary compensation to victims.
The State of New Mexico has agreed to pay $218,000 to cover legal fees for Andrew Jones, who sued the Department of Public Safety (DPS) over records related to the death of his brother. Jones’ brother, James Boyd, was fatally shot by Albuquerque police in 2014.
Boyd was homeless and struggling with mental illness when he was surrounded by armed officers and fatally shot. The two former officers involved, Dominique Perez and Keith Sandy, were subsequently charged with second-degree murder, but their case ended in a mistrial. Jones requested his brother's case records but DPS only turned over some of the records and said they were exempt from such a disclosure due to the investigation being ongoing. The New Mexico Supreme Court found that DPS had violated the state Inspection of Public Records Act and that Jones was entitled to the attorney fees required to battle the issue all the way to the Supreme Court.
