Settlement and Jury Awards

Through this portal, you can access settlements in liability claims against state departments and other government entities, as well as jury awards in civil cases that go to trial.

The Risk Management Division of the General Services Department provides coverage and legal representation to state government entities for claims alleging civil rights violations, whistleblower retaliation, medical malpractice and some other wrongful acts.

To search for a settlement or settlements, you must enter a date range. You can narrow your search by entering the name of the releasor, the releasee department or the claim type.

Releasor is the person who received a settlement. The releasee department is the state agency that entered into the settlement. There can be multiple releasors or releasees in a settlement.

Under NMSA 15-7-9, settlements are open to public inspection and are posted here after the earliest of:

  1. the date a final judgment is issued resolving the claim and all appeals and rights to appeal have been exhausted; or
  2. the date a settlement agreement is signed by all of the parties.

This portal includes settlements that have become open to public inspection since Jan. 1, 2018. Older settlements are available from the Risk Management Division.
