Augustin Plains Ranch LLC (filing as Kokopelli Ranch LLC et al) has filed a Notice of Appeal against Judge Reynold's decision on the the January 3, 2013 Order on Protestants' Motion for Summary Judgment regarding the San Augustin Plains water grab. The Notice of Appeal was filed in the 7th Judicial District Court in Catron County, NM on January 22, 2013.

This is the first round of the next phase of appeal, which is in the Court of Appeals in Santa Fe.  The San Augustin Water Coalition's attorney, R. Bruce Frederick, with New Mexico Environmental Law Center,  should be briefing the Court of Appeals beginning later this spring.
