|New Hampshire Supreme Court|
|Appointed by:||Jeanne Shaheen|
|Preceded by:||Sherman Horton, Jr.|
|Law School:||Georgetown Law Center|
Justice Duggan is a graduate of Georgetown University and Georgetown Law Center.
In October 2012, political science professors Adam Bonica and Michael Woodruff of Stanford University attempted to determine the partisan ideology of state supreme court justices in their paper, State Supreme Court Ideology and 'New Style' Judicial Campaigns. A score above 0 indicated a more conservative leaning ideology while scores below 0 are more liberal. Duggan received a Campaign finance score (CFscore) of -0.79, indicating a liberal ideological leaning. This is less liberal than the average CF score of -0.99 that justices received in New Hampshire. The study is based on data from campaign contributions by judges themselves, the partisan leaning of contributors to the judges or, in the absence of elections, the ideology of the appointing body (governor or legislature). This study is not a definitive label of a justice, but an academic gauge of various factors.
