ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Second Judicial District Court and the Bernalillo County Metropolitan Court in downtown Albuquerque will close early Friday due to a public rally set for later in the day. The court will close at 3 p.m.

The court says they decided to close early due to a public rally scheduled in the downtown area and that possible street closures could impact employees’ ability to leave the area. The Second Judicial District’s Children’s Court at 5100 Second Street will remain open until 5:00 p.m.

Friday the City’s Office of Equity and Inclusion launched a new webpage and hotline at 505-269-5927 to help facilitate community rally’s, protests, or demonstrations.
