Judge Tosses Out New Mexico Law On Embezzlement New Mexico’s 24-year-old law against embezzlement was ruled unconstitutional Monday by District Judge Albert R. Kool. The ruling, if upheld by the State Supreme Court, would leave the state without a law against embezzlement by individuals, until the legislature could pass a new law. It would result in ending of numerous embez-zement cases pending here and elsewhere in the state. Defendants previously sentenced under the law would be in a position to obtain release from prison or jail, and to get back civil rights. The decision does not affect other laws against embezzlement Continued on Fare Two Albuquerque Man Killed in Mora LAS VEGAS, July 21 —Her man E.

The rule does not apply to posts requiring Senate confirmatoin, such as the position of counsellor. Also sent to the Senate along with the Bolden nomination was that of John Carter Vincent, another career diplomat, to be minister to Switzerland. The 52-year-old Cohen steps out July 31.
