Critics call ‘Marsy’s Law’ a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist

January 22, 2018

The state’s political elite have lined up behind a plan to enshrine victim rights in the state Constitution but defense lawyers, law professors and civil libertarians maintain it would be a radical, expensive change to New Hampshire’s unique criminal justice system.

Known as Marsy’s Law for New Hampshire, the lengthy proposed amendment to the state Constitution is being shepherded by high-power lobbyists funded by a California billionaire.

Legal experts said legislative leaders embracing this cause have no idea how disruptive this change would be for New Hampshire.

“This amendment would fundamentally alter the perception of due process we would have had for 225 years,” said Anthony Sculimbrene, a lawyer in the Gottesman and Hollis law firm in Nashua.
