Federal Court Advisory Committee Invites Attorney Input

Many of you who practice in the NH Federal District Court may not be aware that we have a Federal Court Advisory Committee (FCAC), made up of local practitioners, that meets quarterly with Chief Judge McAuliffe, the Clerk of Court (Jim Starr) and the Chief Deputy Clerk (Dan Lynch) to address matters affecting the practice in this district, including proposed local rules changes, wireless access, and a variety of other issues.  Each meeting includes an "Open Session" agenda item when members can bring to the Court's attention any issues of concern to counsel who practice in federal court. This is a valuable opportunity to communicate concerns to the Court.

In our experience, the Court has been genuinely interested in receiving

these comments, which can lead/have led to improvements in our local federal practice. 

If you have any practice issues, concerns or suggestions, you should feel free to pass them along to any FCAC member to pursue on your behalf.  A listing of current FCAC members is available on the court's Web site:


Peter S. Cowan

FCAC Member

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