NM Supreme Court stays decision extending workers’ comp to farm and ranch workers

The New Mexico Supreme Court has entered an order staying the Court of Appeals’ decision in Rodriguez v. Brand West Dairy, which struck down as unconstitutional a statute excluding farm and ranch employees from the workers’ compensation system. The stay will be in effect until the Supreme Court orders otherwise.

I have previously written about this case here.

Disclosure: I recently filed an amicus curiae brief in the Supreme Court, arguing for reversal, on behalf of the New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau.
