Court News: Bankruptcy Court Moving to Concord in 2017

The US Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Hampshire will move from rented space in Manchester to available space at the federal Warren B. Rudman Courthouse in Concord during summer 2017, the federal court recently announced.

The relocation is part of the Circuit’s response to the Judicial Conference of the United States’ (JCUS) space reduction initiative, which mandates that the federal Judiciary reduce its space footprint by 3 percent by the end of September 2018.

Chief Judge Jeffrey R. Howard of the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit announced the move in early October, saying it would enable the Circuit “to achieve considerable cost savings without sacrificing staffing levels or mission-critical services.”

The bankruptcy court and the federal district court will both be housed in the federal courthouse building but will operate independently, with two clerks’ offices. Howard explained that the Circuit Council, Chief Judge Joseph Laplante of the District of New Hampshire and Chief Judge Bruce Harwood of the New Hampshire Bankruptcy Court, support this difficult, but necessary choice. “The Courts are dedicated to ensuring the move is accomplished with minimal disruption to operations.”
