ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Staff attorneys for the state legislature refuse to turn over documents in the fraud and bribery case against former State Senator Phil Griego.

They say it’s their duty to protect privileged communications between lawmakers.

Griego is facing nine criminal charges for allegedly profiting from the sale of state buildings.

Attorney General Hector Balderas has subpoenaed files on a legislative initiative that paved the way for the sale and the senate ethics committee’s investigation into Griego. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
