Mathis resigned on February 28, 2013 amid allegations that he engaged in improper instant messaging during the workday. The New Mexico Judicial Standards Commission also claimed that some communications with his wife were sexual in nature. Judge Mathis admitted to violating the court computer and internet use policy; making disparaging comments about other judges; referring to parties in a case as acting crazy; and making judicial statements about pending cases.[3]

While my legacy is almost assuredly tarnished by these recent events, I am proud of the many accomplishments that occurred during my tenure. The most notable being the construction of the new courthouse, the establishment of the third judgeship and the selection of the Fourth Judicial District as the first court to implement the statewide court management system.[4] - Eugenio Mathis[5]
