New Hampshire courts will shut down on at least three days this spring as a cost-cutting measure.
Employees at the state’s 78 courts will be placed on unpaid furlough on those days and only emergency proceedings will take place.
The Supreme Court justices said courts will be shuttered on April 2, April 30 and May 28. Other dates may be added to reduce costs.
Chief Justice John Broderick said the closures will be disruptive to judges and staff, but added, that "the citizens of New Hampshire will pay the highest price when it comes to access to justice."
