Santa Fe, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced New Mexico will receive the largest tobacco settlement payment in April 2017, a total payment in excess of $50 million. This is due to the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) securing an additional $14.5 million after a judge agreed with the OAG that New Mexico was being shortchanged by Big Tobacco. The cigarette industry didn’t want to make the increased payments it owed to New Mexico, but could not identify any legal basis for stopping enforcement of a prior order obtained by the Office of the Attorney General for the extra $14.5 million. Late yesterday, First Judicial District Court Judge Ortiz agreed with the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General.
