Clerk Robert Muh to Retire; Carlson to Oversee Coos, Grafton

Robert B. Muh
Robert B. Muh, Grafton County Superior Court clerk since 1987, will retire in January 2011, after 27 years of service in state government. Coos County Superior Court Clerk David P. Carlson will be named regional clerk serving both at the Coos location in Lancaster and at the Grafton County Superior Court location in North Haverhill.

Superior Court Chief Justice Robert J. Lynn said Muh, in the remaining months before his retirement, will manage the Coos County clerk’s office in Lancaster from October through December to enable Carlson to shift over to Grafton County courthouse and become familiar with operations there.

Lynn praised Muh for his tireless dedication to the Superior Court. "Bob is widely respected by the bar and the public for his knowledge of court rules and procedures, his friendly easy-going style, and his willingness to go the extra mile to be helpful to people in need of assistance. His retirement will be a real loss for the superior court," Chief Justice Lynn said.

Carlson’s assignment as regional clerk is part of the Superior Court’s long term plan for consolidating the management of the smaller superior courts throughout the state. Starting last November, Barbara Hogan, Clerk of Cheshire County Superior Court, assumed additional duties as Clerk of Sullivan County Superior Court.

Chief Justice Lynn said he is confident that Carlson’s assignment as regional clerk would bring to the North Country more efficient and coordinated scheduling between the two courts. He noted that Carlson will be working with veteran deputy clerks Rose Tucker in North Haverhill and Lana Lesperance in Lancaster, whose extensive experience in court operations will ensure a smooth transition to the regional clerk system.

Carlson, a member of the New Hampshire Bar since 1983, was in private practice for 18 years before his appointment as Clerk of the Coos County Superior Court in 2001. In recent years, in addition to his management responsibilities, he has played an active role in the transition of the Superior Court to the Odyssey case management system.
