Taos. Officer.    US News Excerpt from US -2017/12/27-by Susan Montoya Bryan: A federal appeals court ruled Wednesday that a New Mexico police officer did not violate the constitutional rights of a woman and her five children when he shot at their minivan as they fled a chaotic traffic stop in 2013. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals issued the ruling in the case filed by Oriana Farrell, who was pulled over for speeding and led officers on a high-speed pursuit through the tourist enclave of Taos.The appeals court found that the case against Elias Montoya, the officer who fired three times at the van and later left the force, should have been dismissed by a lower court.Montoya's defense rested on the principal of qualified immunity, which shields public officials from legal actions unless their conduct was unreasonable in light of clearly established law. 2017/12/27--https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/new-mexico/articles/court-sides-with-new-mexico- officer-in-minivan-shooting Raw Story Montoya, Pete   [OLDER -07/2002]  Rio Rancho.
