On April 8, 2016, Assistant U.S. Attorney/Tribal Liaison David Adams participated in the quarterly meeting of the New Mexico Tribal-State Judicial Consortium which was held at the Pueblo of Tesuque. The Consortium grew out of a subcommittee of the Court Improvement Project on child welfare several years ago and was formally recognized by the New Mexico Supreme Court as one of its advisory committees in 2006. Equal numbers of Tribal and State Judges represent the various Pueblos, Tribes and levels of New Mexico Courts on the Consortium; the U.S. Attorney’s Office participates in a liaison capacity. The Consortium provides a forum to help raise awareness among Tribal and State Courts about jurisdictional matters. During the meeting, Assistant U.S. Attorney David Adams provided an update on federal events and cases.
