CONCORD, N.H.—New Hampshire is getting a new state Supreme Court justice this week.

James Bassett will be sworn in the court in Concord on Thursday at 2 p.m.

The Executive Council approved Gov. John Lynch's nomination of Bassett in May.

The 55-year-old Bassett, of Canterbury, has argued many appeals to the court in his 27 years with the law firm of Orr & Reno. He specializes in complex litigation, legal ethics and First Amendment law.

Bassett has served on the planning board in Canterbury, the board of selectmen and the conservation commission.

He succeeds Senior Justice James Duggan, who retired in January.
