Below is a job posting. CVs should be sent to scochran@puebloofpojoaque.org and sofstehage@puebloofpojoaque.org. The position remains open until filled. General Counsel, Santa Fe, N.M. Position open awaiting staffing. Email sofstehage@pojoaque.org Tribal Court Support Attorney, Bethel, A.K. Legal advice and representation for YK Delta tribal governments to improve and develop tribal justice systems that address child protection and community and family safety issues. Given New Mexico`s highways running through both state and tribal lands, it is not uncommon for a tribal police officer patrolling these roads to be designated as the county`s deputy sheriff to arrest non-Native Americans and prosecute them in state court if they commit traffic offenses on tribal lands.

In light of these recurring facts, we determine a county`s legal obligation when a non-Native American arrested by a tribal leader and charged in state court for state traffic violations sues the tribal officer who made the arrest for violating federal civil rights. Specifically, we determine when the county is required, under the New Mexico Tort Claims Act, NMSA 1978, §§ 41-4-1 through -29 (1976, as amended up to 2009) (NMTCA) to provide legal defense to that tribal police officer in the federal civil rights lawsuit. Both the District Court nor this Court of Appeal found any such legal obligation, in part because they found that the tribal leader was not a public servant within the meaning of the NMTCA. We note otherwise, finding clear evidence in the text and purpose of the NMTCA requiring the county to defend the tribal officer duly designated to serve as deputy county sheriff in these circumstances endemic to the New Mexico experience.
