Dear Anita:


On 6/11/2018 we received your public records request for the following records:

On May 29, 2018, at approximately 9:30 a.m., Richard Padgett tripped and fell on an unsafe, unlevel and raised sidewalk as he walked north on a pedestrian overpass on Juan Tabo, where it crosses over Interstate 40. The specific overpass is on the westside of Juan Tabo, where it crosses over Interstate 40.

As a result, Richard Padgett suffered serious injuries and incurred damages. Please accept this correspondence, as our notice to you of Richard Padgett's claims for damages in this matter, pursuant to §41-4-16 NMSA 1978.

Please also accept this correspondence as our demand that all evjdence, including but not limited to video and audio recordings, documents, photographs, statements (whether recorded by audio, video or written or typed) reports, invoices, measurements, work orders, and any and all other items or documents related to the May 29, 2018 trip and fall and the location (pedestrian overpass on Juan Tabo over l-40) be preserved. Failure to preserve this evidence will constitute spoliation of evidence and may warrant sanctions before the Court.
