Suing To Elect A Supreme Court Justice




In Minnesota Supreme Court Justices are supposed to be elected. However, Minnesota's Chief Justice hasn't been election in the last 10 years. That's because of the timing of the resignations of the last three Chief Justices. Governor Tim Pawlenty has appointed each of them and each of them resigned before they faced election.



There is a court challenge to allowing the Governor to appoint a new Chief Justice in the wake of Chief Justice Eric Magnuson's resignation effective in June. The suit asks for voter intervention. The Minnesota Supreme Court heard oral arguments in the case, but Governor Tim Pawlenty's appointees on the court recused themselves from hearing the case.

Retention / Election Bill


SF 70 - Senator Ann Rest / HF 224 - Representative Steve Simon


This bill proposes an amendment to the Minnesota Constitution to change the process for the selection of state court judges. The bill would amend the Constitution and relevant statutes to require that judges who have been initially appointed by the Governor stand for a retention election at the next regularly scheduled general election held more than three years after the appointment of the judge. If the majority of voters vote "no," the office would be declared vacant and the Governor would appoint a new individual to fill the vacancy, as provided under current law. If the voters decide to retain the judge, the judge would serve an eight-year term. (Overview provided by Senate Counsel.)
