HOUSE DEMOCRATS FILE APPEAL IN FEDERAL COURT TO SEEK REMOTE ACCESS TO SESSIONS FOR MOST VULNERABLE H

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Last night, Democratic members of the House of Representatives filed a Notice of Appeal with the Federal Court asking the court to overturn Judge McCafferty's decision. Two plaintiffs in the appeal, Deputy Democratic Leader David Cote (D-Nashua) and Representative Paul Berch (D-Westmoreland), released the following statement:


“We have appealed because we believe the Courts should be available to protect the disabled from discrimination, especially when discrimination is used to gain an unfair political advantage by robbing 100,000 citizens of representation in what should always be the people’s House,” said Representative David Cote (D-Nashua).


Representative Paul Berch (D-Westmoreland) added, “I am pleased that the New Hampshire House Democrats are standing strong for the right of all Representatives to effectively do the job they were elected to do – to fully represent the interests of their constituents and the citizens of this State."
