We have had reports of cyber criminals imitating court telephone numbers (“spoofing”) and demanding that citizens pay money for fines or fees in cases involving relatives. These calls are not valid. New Mexico Courts will never call citizens to ask for payments of any kind.

Service on Court Monitor in Record Appeals

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Court realizes that it may present a challenge for the parties to serve the Metropolitan Court’s court monitor in appeals of record cases to the Court of Appeals.

Therefore, the Metropolitan Court created an email group (metrappeals-grp@nmcourts.gov) that facilitates service of the Notice of Appeal only to the “court monitor or court reporter.” However, this email group does not replace the process of filing the Notice of Appeal or any other pleadings with the Metropolitan Court.  So please continue to file pleadings with a copy for the Judge as you would normally file pleadings.
