COVID-19: New Hampshire Supreme Court to Hold Remote Oral Arguments

           On April 21, 2020, the New Hampshire Supreme Court announced via a News Release that beginning on Wednesday, April 29, the New Hampshire Supreme Court will hold remote oral arguments via videoconferencing technology. This release was in response to the continued COVID-19 pandemic.

           Senior Associate Justice Gary E. Hicks was quoted in the release stating “Oral argument is an important and helpful part of the appellate process, for both the advocates and the justices. By using videoconferencing technology in coordination with livestreaming, we aim to maintain the benefits of oral argument, while minimizing delay, and continuing to offer New Hampshire citizens a real-time glimpse into the workings of the court system.”

           Live video streaming of oral arguments will remain available to the public the Supreme Court’s website.
