July 24, 2020 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panelists look at the restaurant open/close shuffle that started with a lawsuit against Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s administration filed by the New Mexico Restaurant Association and several restaurants from around the state. The governor reinstated the ban on indoor dining after a rise in COVID-19 infections. That ban, blocked by a Carlsbad state judge on Monday, was re-imposed the same day by the New Mexico Supreme Court
