The last time we checked in with the case, the Democrat from San Jose pleaded not guilty.This came in front of the eighth judge assigned to the case.Griego engineered the legislation that allowed the deal to go forward, though he did not personally carry the legislation.
He admitted that this violated Senate rules and a provision of the state constitution when he resigned from the state Senate.
According to prosecutors, Griego allegedly pressured the Capitol Buildings Planning Commission to review the deal; the commission had no authority to reject the deal but the legislation required a review for the deal to go through.
Daniels wrote “it would be in the best interests of judicial economy and the expeditious disposition of the foregoing case” to assign the case to Loveless.
The case involves a land deal with the state on a building in Santa Fe.
