Do we still do this in court in NM? They haven't had anyone swear on a bible in courtrooms in CA for years. I had hoped that NM had followed suit. I've never been asked to swear on a bible, so I'm not sure how I'd handle it. The thought that our judicial systems operate under sea law is an urban legend. If you look up the different flags online you'll find that the flag with the gold fringe that is a top down design does not necessarily mean that the courtroom is working under maritime law. I've never seen a ship with US registry flying a flag with gold fringe, they all fly a standard stars and bars.
