SANTA FE, New Mexico: With litigation surrounding 2012 statewide ballot measures, a state's high court has now chimed in on a local ballot measure that is garnering much attention.[1]

The New Mexico Supreme Court ordered on September 12, 2012 that a proposal to increase minimum wage in Albuquerque, New Mexico by $1 an hour be placed in front of voters on November 6.

The case was placed before the state high court the previous day after state District Court Judge Nan Nash blocked the measure from the ballot, commenting that the proposal violated state law.
