From The Santa Fe Reporter:

In a letter to Gov. Susana Martinez' office, New Mexico Assistant Attorney General Sally Malavé writes that the governor's office erred in failing to provide public documents in response to a request filed by SFR last summer. The letter says the governor's office may be liable for "up to $100 per day" since August, "the requested records or a denial letter…immediately."
