Chief Justice Russell Anderson of the Minnesota Supreme Court today notified Gov. Tim Pawlenty that he will retire June 1.
Initially appointed to the Supreme Court in 1998, he has been chief justice since 2006. He previously served as a district court judge.
"Chief Justice Anderson is an extraordinary leader and public servant," Pawlenty said in a statement. "From his service in the United States Navy to his leadership of the Minnesota Supreme Court, he has committed his life to protecting and upholding our state and nation's values and principles. We especially thank him for his 25 years of hard work and dedication as a judge and wish him well in his retirement and future endeavors."

Re: Ethics Complaint against Chief Justice Russell A. Anderson
Dear Mr. Paull:
I wish to file an ethics complaint against Chief Justice Russell A. Anderson for willful failure to exercise adequate oversight of Lawyers Professional Responsibility to ensure that they are conducting investigations of ethics complaints against all Minnesota lawyers with due diligence, specifically including county attorneys. I have filed many complaints against Dakota County Attorney James C. Backstrom with Lawyers Professional Responsibility for unethically perpetrating frauds upon the courts of two states and the federal government, which they summarily dismissed without investigation and Chief Justice Anderson refused to review. I believe the Minnesota Board on Judicial Standards is entitled to an independent review of Chief Justice Andersonâ€™s failure to act in this case.
When five Massachusetts judges refuse to enforce a Minnesota judgment while they are legally required to enforce all valid out-of-state judgments, and Dakota County Attorney Backstrom then fails to protest or appeal the Massachusetts judges refusal to enforce his judgment and dismissal of my case in its entirety, there is probable cause to ask why. When DCA Backstrom refuses to enforce his own judgment in a Minnesota court of law for fifteen years and only then to garnish my social security benefit for another thirty years instead of simply initiating a bench warrant for my arrest and extradition to Minnesota for immediate and full enforcement of his judgment in a Minnesota court of law, there is probable cause to question the validity and legality of the judgment. Obviously, none of this is in the best interest of his client. I believe a county attorney acting in the best interest of his client would enforce his own judgment in something less than half a century. Thank you.
