108th NH Supreme Court associate justice pledges experience, passion, curiosity to state


CONCORD — The New Hampshire Supreme Court swore in their 108th associate justice Tuesday.

Current and former Supreme Court justices, Gov. Chris Sununu, friends, family, and a room full of spectators were in attendance to witness to swearing in of now Associate Justice Anna Barbara “Bobbie” Hantz Marconi.

Chief Justice Linda Stewart Dalianis began the proceedings introducing the justices in the room and saying a quick hello to Hantz Marconi's mother, who was watching online. Dalianis, as well as many of the other who spoke to Hantz Marconi's merit, drew laughs and applause with mention of what she said might be the longest name a New Hampshire Supreme Court Justice has ever had.

Hantz Marconi was sworn in by Sununu who, before beginning, mentioned his own swearing in and how he did not get it right the first time around saying "you can't do worse than the governor."

Hantz Marconi spoke after being sworn in and said that she is aware of what the appointment means to those who will be affected by her appointment.

"I pledge to you my experience, my passion, my curiosity, my hard work, and I promise not to forget where I came from," Hantz Marconi said. "I thank you for this great honor."

The appointment and swearing in of Hantz Marconi fills the seat that was left empty by the retirement of Associate Justice Carol Ann Conboy on July 1.

Hantz Marconi is Sununu's first appointee to the Supreme Court of New Hampshire.

The ceremony ended with Hantz Marconi joining Dalianis and Associate Justices Gary E. Hicks, Robert J. Lynn and James P. Bassett who were seated across from her for the preceding parts of the ceremony.
