by: Jami Seymore
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Attorneys for the victim in last summer’s shooting at the Juan de Oñate statue protest in Albuquerque are taking action against the city. They say the City of Albuquerque and Dept. of Public Safety have not provided them with public records about the shooting, that they are legally entitled to.
“State and local entities don’t hold true to their promise of transparency and accountability. We have to sue to get, what are clearly, public records.” —Laura Schauer Ives, one of Williams’ attorneys
