The Executive Council confirmed the appointments of three new judges Wednesday, including two to the Superior Court.

The council unanimously confirmed New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission Chairman Amy Ignatius as one of the new additions to the Superior Court bench.

The council also confirmed two other judicial appointments: Manchester attorney Andrew Schulman to the Superior Court and Senior Assistant Attorney General Suzanne Gorman to the Circuit Court.

Governor Maggie Hassan says she’s pleased with the confirmations.

“We have three individuals with a wide breadth of experience in the law and they’ll make excellent judges.”

Ignatius has served on the PUC since 2009 and was appointed chairman in 2012. All three appointments were recommended by the Governor’s judicial selection commission.
