The NMAA has formally joined the Parkview Community Ditch in its efforts to uphold a district court decision that found that the acequia did nothing wrong in conducting its annual meeting and election in Spanish.  The NMAA, along with the New Mexico Land Grant Council, two acequias and two land grants, will file an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in the later part of December urging the New Mexico Court of Appeals to uphold the lower court’s ruling.  The Court’s decision will likely have widespread implications for acequias and land grants that conduct their meetings in Spanish.
