Water users in New Mexico sue over Navajo Nation settlement

The San Juan Agricultural Water Users Association has sued the New Mexico State Engineer over a settlement with the Navajo Nation.

The group claims the state hasn't provided documents it requested from Engineer John D'Antonio. The group wants emails, cellphone and text messages, recordings, computer data and other records affecting the settlement.

The state agreed to the settlement in 2005. It was signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2009.
