Court News: Governor Makes Four Judicial Nominations




NH Governor Maggie Hassan nominated Amy Messer, director of the Disabilities Rights Center – NH, to the NH Superior Court bench, earlier this month.

She also nominated Edward Tenney, Charles Greenhalgh and Henrietta Luneau to judgeships on the NH Circuit Court.

Messer, currently the executive director of the Disability Rights Center, also served as the center’s legal director, senior staff attorney and staff attorney. She led the center in its lawsuit against the state over inadequate community-based mental health care, reaching a a settlement agreement two years ago. Messer was co-recipient of the 2014 Frank Rowe Kenison award from the NH Bar Foundation.

Tenney is the presiding justice for the 6th Circuit in Hillsborough and an associate justice for the 2nd Circuit in Lebanon, on a full-time per diem basis. He has extensive experience in family law, including as a sole practitioner for nearly two decades, and as a guardian ad litem.

Greenhalgh, of Cooper Cargill Chant in North Conway, has extensive experience in family law, landlord and tenant law, bankruptcy law, employment law and civil litigation, and has been a stalwart volunteer in the NH Bar Pro Bono program.

A marital master for New Hampshire’s 10th Circuit Court Family Division in Kingston, Luneau was an attorney at two private practices and has significant experience as a guardian ad litem.

All four nominations are subject to Executive Council approval.
