Public can follow Court Innovation Commission on new blog


CONCORD, July 13 --The New Hampshire Judicial Branch Innovation Commission has launched a new "blog" where commission members can post informal updates about their work and proposals. Members of the public can read the blog postings at http://blogs.nh.gov/nhpress2/nhjbic.

The goal of the Innovation Commission, which was established by the Supreme Court in March, is to identify changes needed to meet the increasing demand for court services while state resources are in severe decline. Members of the commission include judges, lawmakers, business leaders and experts from the National Center for State Courts.

The Commission is chaired by Eric Herr of Bristol, a private sector business executive with 25 years of management and strategic planning experience. The Commission is scheduled to issue a report of its recommendations in January.

The blog was created at no cost using existing state resources provided by the state Department of Information Technology (DoIT). Technical assistance is provided by Brian Eddy, the Judicial Branch website co-ordinator, and Theresa Pare-Curtis, Linda Sheldon, and Thomas Gilligan at DoIT.
