Attorney General Gordon MacDonald, in a letter to Gov. Chris Sununu and members of the Executive Council, has outlined the circumstances under which he will disqualify or “recuse” himself from certain cases if confirmed to be the next Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Supreme Court.

The letter, dated Monday, was sent just 48 hours ahead of MacDonald’s confirmation hearing of June 26 in council chambers.

MacDonald said that if confirmed he would recuse himself from any cases that come before the Supreme Court involving civil matters “pending in the Attorney General’s office at the time that I leave that is either on appeal or results in an appeal.” (Related opinion piece, Page A6.)
