Assuming there is no legislative modification to last year's enacted statute and the only way to change the law is via a lawsuit, this is going to go to the NH Supreme Court. Or, if there is a modification, this could still go to the NHSC. Chief Justice Lynn has mandatory retirement in August and it'll be interesting to see his replacement as Sununu picked Lynn to replace the previous Chief Justice and also the new Associate Justice, Donovan. I think Sununu will pick one of the current members of the bench (Hicks or Bassett probably) to replace Chief Justice Lynn. Question is who fills the fifth seat. The Governor's Council is 3/2 Dems. Sununu is safe until 2020. With Chief Justice Lynn leaving in August, Sununu is probably going to have to pick a moderate Republican to fill the fifth seat. One of the Dem members of the GC spoke out against Lynn's appointment as Chief Justice precisely because of this timeline. So it'll make for an interesting summer.
