DALLAS - Former New Mexico investment officer Gary Bland is seeking $1.25 million from the State Investment Council in a lawsuit that claims he was damaged by claims of corruption.

The Investment Council, which Bland formerly headed, filed a lawsuit in May 2011, alleging that Bland and others made New Mexico investments through political supporters of former Gov. Bill Richardson. Former pension fund investment officer Frank Foy made similar allegations in whistle-blower lawsuits.
