N.H. Attorney General Michael Delaney Stepping Down
New Hampshire's Attorney General Michael Delaney has announced he's not seeking reappointment.
In a letter to Governor Hassan, Delaney says he has decided to return to privately practicing law.
Governor John Lynch appointed Delaney in 2009. Before that, Delaney served as a criminal prosecutor for the state, deputy attorney general, as well as legal counsel to Governor Lynch.
As Attorney General, Delaney refused to join in a lawsuit fighting the Affordable Care Act, despite pressure from former House Speaker Bill O’Brien and others in the New Hampshire legislature.
Delaney will also be remembered for his office’s role in the investigation of a Ponzi scheme run by Financial Resources Mortgage Inc. – or FRM.
The Attorney General says he will remain in his role at the Justice Department as necessary while Governor Hassan appoints a new head.
Any appointment by the Governor must be confirmed by a majority of Executive Councilors.
