The victim in the domestic violence case against former state Sen. Jeff Woodburn settled their civil case
The victim in the domestic violence case against former state Sen. Jeff Woodburn and the couple’s former mental health counselor whom she sued in 2021 for medical malpractice and breach of confidentiality have settled their civil case. A trial management conference that had been scheduled for Thursday after Grafton Superior was canceled after a settlement letter was received by the court the day before. The details of what is expected in the settlement were not stated. In 2021, Paul Donahue, the Littleton-based counselor that Woodburn, 57, of Whitefield, and Emily Jacobs, 40, formerly of Jefferson and now living in Maine, began seeing in 2018 was found by the New Hampshire Board of Mental Health Practice to have had 12 instances of misconduct during his time counseling the couple.
