The article reports on the decision of District Judge Richard Knowles on action by Albuquerque, New Mexico Mayor Martin Chávez last July 2005 to halt most city funding to the local jail and turn it over to county control. The decision was a defeat for Bernalillo County which wanted the city to keep paying half the cost of running the Metropolitan Detention Center. The county said that it might have to bring down programs and increase taxes to absorb the city's share of the jail cost.
