Former Gov. Merrill steps down from UNH Law's Rudman Center after Broderick

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) - A former state governor has stepped down from an advisory board to a center affiliated with the University of New Hampshire School of Law, after former state Supreme Court chief justice John Broderick said he was resigning as the center's leader.

UNH said former governor Steve Merrill resigned Wednesday, following the resignation of Portsmouth lawyer Stephen Tober. Both were part of the 60-member board of advisers to the Rudman Center for Justice, Leadership & Public Policy.

In his resignation letter March 17, Broderick said UNH hasn't meaningfully supported his work at the center, which aims to promote leadership skills and instill a commitment to justice.

UNH is developing a leadership transition plan.

Merrill and Broderick started a law firm. As governor, Merrill appointed Broderick to the state Supreme Court.
