Tapped to lead New Hampshire’s highest court, Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said Wednesday he has the experience, attitude and skills to switch from enforcing laws to interpreting them despite having no prior judicial experience.
Republican Gov. Chris Sununu nominated MacDonald earlier this month to replace Chief Justice Robert Lynn, who retires in August. While MacDonald has broad support from the legal community — including Lynn and his two predecessors — critics have raised questions about his lack of experience as a judge and his involvement in conservative Republican politics.
