After stepping down as head of the Rudman Center at UNH Law last week, former New Hampshire Chief Justice John Broderick has been banned from the center he helped found.

Broderick stepped down from the post, citing a lack of support from the university.

The New Hampshire Union Leader reports Broderick was told by university officials Friday to vacate his office and not to appear at any events at the Rudman Center.

The former New Hampshire state supreme court Chief Justice is stepping down from the UNH School of Law Warren B. Rudman Center.

John Broderick , who was Dean of the UNH Law School before he left that post to lead the Rudman Center last year, told NHPR that he and university administrators differed over the Rudman Center's future.

"I love the Rudman Center and what it stood for and its potential, and I can assure you I would never have left a job I love that much and a center that I helped found if I was getting support from the university," Broderick said.
