New Hampshire Forms

At the law library, we are asked occasionally how to find a sample writ of mandamus. Although there are many forms on the New Hampshire Judicial Branch website, there is no fill-in-the-blank form for this. We've linked to one example below, but to find more you will need to look at supreme or superior court case files - most of which are not freely available online. Weibusch on Civil Practice and Procedure (see the Read About section) lists many New Hampshire cases involving writs of mandamus. Choose some of the most recent and contact the appropriate courts to find out how to look at copies of the files.
