Have you been contacted by a person claiming to be a court employee who states that you are not in compliance with an order of the court because you missed a court date or did not pay? Keep yourself safe from cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) who demand payment!  Anyone who receives a suspicious phone call should hang up and verify the status of their case using the NMCourts Case Lookup tool.  You can also contact the court directly or call court customer service at: 855-268-7804.  Remember: you can always see a Judge to address your outstanding issues.

About the Commission

The NM Supreme Court formed the Commission in 2020 to study issues related to race and bias in the state’s justice system and to promote diversity among judges and judicial employees.

Mission and Goals

The mission of the New Mexico Supreme Court Commission on Equity and Justice is to study New Mexico’s justice system and make recommendations to achieve the following essential objectives:

  1. Eliminate biases and inequities within New Mexico’s justice system that are due to race, ethnicity, color, national or tribal origin, ancestry, citizenship, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or presentation, indigent status, physical, mental or developmental disability or condition, age, English language proficiency, parenting status or pregnancy, and other characteristics identified by the Commission;
  2. Give all persons equitable access to the state’s justice system;
  3. Add transparency to the state’s justice system and make sure that all persons are treated equitably within it;
  4. Provide education and training to judges and court staff to accomplish the foregoing objectives; and
  5. Provide educational and professional opportunities for prospective lawyers, judges, and employees from underrepresented groups, so that all groups are equitably represented within the state’s judiciary and other aspects of its judicial functioning.
