Citizens Commission Issues Final Report

The NH Citizens Commission on the State Courts has issued its findings to the NH Supreme Court after more than a year of intensive effort and study by a commission of mostly non-lawyers.


The report proposes 30 recommendations, ranging from initiatives to improve the “customer service” orientation of the courts; more rapid implementation of technology for both court processing and to provide more information; case managers to assist litigants in family courts; greater use of sentencing alternatives and more resources for substance abuse treatment; and continued cooperation and information-sharing between the branches of government.


Commission co-chairs Will Abbott and Katharine Eneguess pledged to continue working with the court system to follow up to ensure that the report’s recommendations are considered for implementation.

Supreme Court Rule 42(9) requires all NH admitted attorneys to notify the Bar Association of any address change, home or office.
