ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Four of the five New Mexico Supreme Court justices have bowed out from hearing a lawsuit challenging Gov. Susana Martinez’s veto that denied judges an 8 percent pay raise.

The lawsuit was filed Monday by a coalition of judicial associations, individual judges and two state senators.

Supreme Court Clerk Joey Montoya tells the Albuquerque Journal (http://ow.ly/vTUVJ ) that the fifth justice, Richard Bosson, will serve as acting chief justice to preside over the case and appoint temporary justices to hear it.
