Both court cases in which ECIA is involved, the hens as pets issue (ECIA v. Billings et al.) and the ground-mounted solar array issue (Daigle v. ECIA) are in the hands of the New Mexico Court of Appeals. In both cases, the District Court judges ruled in ECIA’s favor. At the appeals level, each case will be handled by a three-judge panel, which can decide to rule based on documentation from the District Court proceedings, or can ask for additional hearings. Action at the Appeals Court level can take several months, although we would expect to hear something from the court on both cases later this year or early next year."
