Manufacturers turn to US Supreme Court on auto dealer law

The Associated Press

CONCORD — Lawyers for John Deere and other farm and heavy equipment managers are taking their case to the U.S. Supreme Court following a state court decision that rejected most of their challenges to New Hampshire's Auto Dealers Bill of Rights law.

The law, signed by Gov. Maggie Hassan in 2013, was expanded to include manufacturers of tractors and yard and garden equipment.

The manufacturers say the law looping them into protections designed for automobile and truck dealers unconstitutionally interferes with their equipment dealer contracts. They said they were improperly lumped in with auto manufacturers. The state Supreme Court rejected most of their arguments.

The manufacturers asked the U.S. Supreme Court last week to halt further legal proceedings until that court can decide whether to hear their appeal.
