New Edition of Civil Practice Book Published
Gordon MacDonald of Nixon Peabody has authored a new edition of a multi-volume book on civil practice and procedure in New Hampshire courts. The fourth edition of MacDonald’s book, New Hampshire Practice: Wiebusch on New Hampshire Civil Practice and Procedure, was released this month by publisher Matthew Bender and Company.

The new edition addresses recent developments in New Hampshire civil practice, including completely revised Superior Court Rules, which became effective Oct. 1, 2013, and brought significant changes to practice in New Hampshire’s principal trial court. The book also discusses the consolidation of three trial courts into the Circuit Court, as well as other changes in statutory and case law.

This edition comes 30 years after the first edition was published in 1984.

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