 A new judge has been assigned in the lawsuit against Dona Ana County Clerk Lynn Ellins.

Judge Manuel Arrieta will hear the case where a group of republican lawmakers are suing Ellins saying he overstepped his authority and his actions were unconstitutional when he decided to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

When the lawsuit was first filed, Judge James Martin was assigned to the case but recused himself earlier this month.
