A message from NM Workers’ Compensation Administration Director Darin A. Childers:

It was with sad hearts that those of us at the WCA learned of the passing of David Whitham earlier this week. David was an attorney at the law firm of Butt, Thornton and Baehr and a longtime practitioner before the WCA. David was respected and very well-liked by his peers. His experience and professionalism warranted his appointment as a judge pro tem on various occasions over the years. We know he will be greatly missed and we extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Darin A. Childers, Director
