11/19/18 Debt Collected in STEVEN G. RYAN, Supreme Court Case No. 33,369, JSC Inquiry Nos. 1996-006, 1996-060 & 1996-065

On November 19, 2018, former Las Cruces Municipal Court Judge Steven G. Ryan satisfied the $958.66 outstanding judgment lien including interest which the Commission recorded after Ryan failed to repay costs ordered by the Supreme Court. Ryan resigned in the 1990s upon stipulated agreement with the Commission that was approved and ordered by the Supreme Court. In 2012 on motion by the Commission, Ryan was permanently barred from judicial office and ordered to pay the Commission’s costs in the 2012 proceeding. The judgment was satisfied when funds were collected by a title company handling the sale of real property owned by Mr. Ryan and the Commission promptly released its lien.
