John Broderick, UNH tell conflicting departure stories


CONCORD - Former State Supreme Court Chief Justice John Broderick is setting the record straight about his departure from the Rudman Center at the UNH School of Law where he was the Executive Director. His version of events is very different from the story told by UNH officials.

Last month Broderick announced he was stepping down on June 1, 2015 claiming a lack of support from university officials. Shortly after, a UNH spokesperson denied reports that Broderick had been banned from the center, saying he would remain on call during the transition.

In a letter obtained by NH1 News sent this week to the Rudman Center advisory board members, Broderick said a message he got from the school’s H.R. Department paints a different picture.

Here are some excerpts from the letter written by Broderick:

- "I was specifically instructed to turn in my keys and identification card as soon as possible and not report to work."

- "I was informed that I would not be participating in any law school or Rudman Center events going forward..."

- "I was told that I 'should not suggest that I continue to represent the law school."

- "My iPad was shut off (without prior notice)."

- "I was not allowed to retrieve my personal belongings directly but had to do so through an intermediary."

Broderick said he is not angry or bitter, but he wanted to make sure the facts were known. NH1 News contacted UNH, but university officials declined to comment.
