Bar Journal - September 1, 2001

Introduction

By:

This year, marking the tenth year that Franklin Pierce Law Center has collaborated with the New Hampshire Bar Association in publishing the Annual Survey of New Hampshire law, it is fitting that we offer our deep appreciation for Associate Justice James E. Duggan. Justice Duggan worked on the Annual Survey since 1977, and at the Law Center he was instrumental in engaging students and administration in producing this annual issue. As the faculty supervisor for the Annual Survey, he spent countless hours working with student writers and editors, and helped many students develop in those roles. A superior scholar, teacher and lawyer, his positive influence remains strong with Franklin Pierce Law Center graduates and students.

As has been the tradition established at the Law Center by Justice Duggan, this issue of the Annual Survey contains articles written by second year students. These students received input from Justice Duggan, who served as faculty advisor in the fall, 2000. With guidance from Justice Duggan and third year editors, these students chose and discussed a recent New Hampshire Supreme Court decision. Members of the NHBA Publications Committee then individually reviewed each article and met with student authors.

This yearís articles analyze issues from childrenís rights to property tax. In the first part of this issue, student authors analyze parental rights issues arising from In re: Bill F. and Tomasko v. Dubuc, juvenile rights from In reWesley B., double jeopardy for criminal defendants in State v. Gould, and prisonerís disenfranchisement in Fischer v. Governor. These are followed by articles discussing restrictive covenants and tortious interference in National v. Olsten and the constitutionality of alternative statutory lien procedure in Thomas Tool v. Town of Croydon. In the final articles, Attorney Mark Puffer discusses significant decisions of the United States Supreme Court and Justice Souterís positions, and Attorney Charles DeGrandpre focuses on recent New Hampshire Supreme Court decisions. As appears in the September issue, the final item is the New Hamsphire Bar Journal index of articles from vol. 32, no. 1 through vol. 42, no.3.

At the Law Center we want to express our appreciation for the staff and editors of the Bar Journal for all their help in publishing this issue and for Susan Marshall of the NHBA Publications Committee for her expertise and guidance. We look forward to continuing the tradition started by Justice Duggan and working with the New Hampshire Bar Association to make the Annual Survey a success in years to come.
