I took a couple of cases here in 2015, and was not operating with a lawyer, nor a Court appointed one. Neither am I a lawyer. Therefore, I had initial difficulty understanding the process, but did eventually get some handle on it. I had a Civil case. I did enjoy the politeness and concern of the law clerks of the Court, but was not generally impressed by the help of the basic staff... There are too stringent rules, in my opinion, which they are placed under, so as not to be seen as 'helping', in any bias sense, a defendant or Plaintiff. Come the court day, which was actually an initial hearing, I was again disappointed in that they shuffled us into Court, and had the next case's participants lining up in Court -- in the very same room -- behind us, as if they were in a hurry to get us (me) out of the way... And then eventually my case was never heard on the merits: quite disillusioning, after all my troubles. I thought I was being prejudged without even being heard. The building itself is an old circa 1900 structure, which they have built over, and remodeled, with the typical modern screened plastic see-through fencing, making it all the more difficult for a novice to learn, be understood, and made to feel welcome. Yet the more critical end is the justice itself, or lack of it, and in the case of Merrimack Superior Court I did walk away disappointed. There are all sorts of silly technical rules and laws these days protecting entrenched interests, yet there should always exist a Judge, and staff, that is sympathetically wanting to hear your case without at all prejudging you. I thought they were lacking in this respect. As a final word, the 300$ fee for filing a case, this being besides summoning and notification fees, is ridiculous, and represents an abuse of the public trust.
