Greg Wersal and Jill Clark have a date for their day in the court of appeals.

The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear their argument that the office of Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court should be placed on the ballot this fall at 2 p.m. Sept. 20 in St. Paul.

In June, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Davis denied a bid by the two attorneys to have the Minnesota Supreme Court chief justice’s spot put on the November ballot.

Wersal and Clark argue that Gov. Tim Pawlenty should not have been allowed to appoint a successor to Chief Justice Eric Magnuson, who stepped down from the high court on June 30, and that voters are being denied their constitutional right to elect the chief.Pawlenty appointed Associate Justice Lorie Gildea to fill the chief’s spot.


  1. Interesting very interesting!

    We talk about separation of power but for some weird reason the chief Justice always retire in a convenient time so that the chief executive can pick a favorable replacement. This is just a coincident I assume as the oath of the office will never allow the chief justice and the chief executive to circumvent the constitution of the state.
