STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eighteen

 

AN ADDRESS seeking the removal from office of superior court judge James D. O'Neill, III.

 

The house of representatives and senate in general court convened, under part 2, article 73 of the New Hampshire constitution, satisfied that the public good requires that Judge James D. O'Neill, III of the New Hampshire superior court should no longer hold and retain his office and that there is reasonable cause for his removal, respectfully address and request the governor, with the advice and consent of the council, to remove him from office.  The cause for removal of Judge James D. O'Neill, III is that he brought his office and the judiciary into disrepute, exceeded his constitutional authority, abused his discretion, and perpetrated a fraud on the people of New Hampshire by violating part I, article 29 of the New Hampshire constitution which states that only the legislature has the power to suspend the laws, and RSA 528:16, 528:18, and 528:19, relating to the levy of executions on real estate.
