ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A commission appointed by the New Mexico Supreme Court to study the state’s system of adult guardianships voted Friday to require that docket sheets are posted on a public website.

Dockets, which provide basic information about guardianship cases, filed in state court will appear on the court’s official website, www.nmcourts.com, starting May 23, the New Mexico Adult Guardianship Study Commission decided.

Most records, reports and evidence are confidential under state law in cases where a petition is filed with the court seeking guardianship for an allegedly incapacitated person.

But certain records are supposed to be public under state law, including the docket sheet, the person’s name and the duration of the guardianship, according to state law.

District Judge Wendy York, chairwoman of the commission, said some court clerks have withheld that information. Posting the information online will help ensure that people throughout the state can learn basic information about a guardianship petition, including the name of the presiding judge.

  1. After 4 years of Criminal misconduct by the entire Judicial (Judge Nash and Brickhouse)(who appointed all of them and provided no Oversight) Professional appointments such as Guardian Ad Litem Barbara Buck, Trustee, Darryl Millet, Atty, Court Visitor, Mary Galvez, in the ABQ 2nd District court house. Estates have been pilfered dry by these Skilled Predators. Victims leave a long trail for decades of million dollar Estates GONE! No accounting provided and hidden behind a veil of secrecy. Judges protect these appointments as they expect these attorneys to return the favor when they are up for re-election to fund their campaign. “For Profit Guardianships”. Thank God Diane blew the lid off this and after a brutal year of chasing all these well greased palms. None have qualifications to do the job they were appointed. They are colluded in all the same cases if you go thru the dockets.
