Jury Trial Schedule

CONCORD---The following is the schedule of jury trial cancellations at nine Superior Court locations. The Judicial Branch decided to cancel one month of jury trials after the Governor and legislature requested reductions to help avoid a deficit during the current fiscal year. The cancellations will be implemented at the following locations:

            Belknap County - December 2008
            Carroll County - February 2009
            Cheshire County - February 2009
            Grafton County - February 2009
            Hillsborough-North - Service period of 2/13/09-3/13/09
            Hillsborough-South - March 2009
            Merrimack County - Service period of 2/23/09-3/23/09
            Rockingham County - February 2009
            Strafford County - April 2009


Trials that were to go forward during those periods will be rescheduled. The jury trial schedule remains unchanged in Sullivan and Coos Counties, where jury trials are currently held every other month.

For more information on this matter, contact your local county court clerk and visit the NH Bar website.
