2002 ANNUAL REPORT "WORKING TOGETHER FOR JUSTICE"

RELEASED ON JUDICIAL BRANCH WEBSITE

CONCORD—The 2002 annual report of the State of New Hampshire Judicial Branch, "Working Together for Justice," was released today on the judicial branch website, www.courts.state.nh.us. The full-color, 12-page report includes a series of short stories about a day at Nashua District Court, as well as caseload summaries and financial data.

Chief Justice David A. Brock, in a letter to the public, the governor and state lawmakers, said the theme of the report summarizes the continuing effort throughout the court system to provide all New Hampshire citizens "a full and fair measure of justice, within the limits of the resources available to us."

The report, produced by the court’s Public Information Office, provides an overview of significant issues in the court system during the past year, including access to justice, court services and facilities, security and public outreach.

Printed copies of the annual report will be available for review at courthouses throughout New Hampshire, as well as at the State Library, 20 Park Street, Concord, and the New Hampshire Law Library, located in the Supreme Court building at One Noble Drive, Concord.
