NM declines to adopt third-party doctrine in bank records under state constitution

“In this opinion we address whether, pursuant to Article II, Section 10 of the New Mexico Constitution, defendants Ismael and Angela Adame (the Adames) had a reasonable expectation of privacy in personal financial records maintained by their banks. We hold that Article II, Section 10 does not recognize a reasonable expectation of privacy in the Adames’ banking records, which consist of five years of financial information voluntarily shared with their banks. Accordingly, we affirm the district court, which declined to suppress the bank records of the Adames on the basis of the New Mexico Constitution.” State v. Adame, 2020 N.M. LEXIS 12 (June 18, 2020).
