Hantz Confirmed to Supreme Court

Justice Hantz

Anna Barbara Hantz Marconi, known by most as Bobbie Hantz, was unanimously confirmed by the NH Executive Council on June 21 as the newest associate justice on the five-member New Hampshire Supreme Court, the state’s highest and only appellate court.

“I am incredibly proud to have nominated Bobbie to serve on New Hampshire’s highest court,” said Governor Chris Sununu following Hantz’s confirmation. “One of the Granite State’s sharpest legal minds, Bobbie is an outstanding legal talent with in-depth knowledge of the law and a diversity of experiences. She will make innumerable contributions to the New Hampshire Supreme Court. Throughout her distinguished career, she has exhibited a passion for the law and public service, both of which will serve her well as she brings a fresh perspective to decisions on the most pressing legal questions facing our state.”

At a public hearing June 19, Hantz answered questions about her past involvement with GOP candidate campaigns and her role on the board of the Josiah Barlett Center for Public Policy, a local public policy think-tank. She told the Executive Council that she would be able to wind down her practice at Sheehan Phinney Bass & Green in Manchester, where she was a shareholder.

Hantz, 62, fills the seat vacated by Justice Carol Ann Conboy, who recently reached the mandatory retirement age for judges in New Hampshire (see related story) after about eight years on the Supreme Court bench.

“I am thrilled to have the confirmation vote of all five Executive Councilors and look forward to serving the people of New Hampshire as represented by these five districts,” said Hantz “I am truly humbled by the Governor’s nomination and look forward to getting to work.”

Hantz, the third woman in history to serve on the NH Supreme Court, said during the public hearing on her nomination that she looks forward to the day when she “is just another person nominated to the Supreme Court.”
