Temperatures inside the building are between 85 and 90 degrees and could rise as the day progresses, according to a press release from the City of Las Cruces. All hearings set for this afternoon will be rescheduled.
Efforts to restore the air conditioning are underway and it is hoped that the court can reopen tomorrow.
