New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez, a Republican, is being blocked by the State Senate over a controversial nominee to the Board of Regents of New Mexico Highlands University, The New Mexican reported. The nominee, Carl G. Foster, was formerly an adjunct at the university and he has sued an academic dean, a vice president, and the Board of Regents that he hopes to join. State senators said that they didn't like the idea of appointing to a board someone who is suing that board. Foster responded by dropping the lawsuit, but that hasn't won him support.
