Bar Buzz: Margaret Chutich is a Hall of Famer

In the eyes of her high school alma mater, at least, Justice Margaret H. Chutich belongs in the pantheon of greatness.

The state Supreme Court associate justice was inducted into the Anoka High School Hall of Fame on Friday as one of 10 honorees.

The 1976 graduate returned to her old school on April 11 as a part of the full court’s traveling oral arguments. (The court heard State of Minnesota v. Cortney John Edstrom that day in front of 850 high schoolers, if you’re curious.)

“It was such a joy to return to Anoka High School in the spring with the Supreme Court,” Chutich said in a Judicial Branch press release. “I am proud of my Anoka roots and delighted to be joining the School’s Hall of Fame.”

She lettered six times in varsity tennis and basketball during her time at Anoka, according to the Judicial Branch’s press release. In her junior year, Chutich came in second in the first-ever girls’ Minnesota State High School League tennis tournament. A year later, she finished first.

She was co-captain of both the varsity tennis and basketball teams — once setting a school hoopster record with 42 points in a game.

She also played starting point guard for Stanford University’s varsity basketball team and later played varsity tennis at the University of Minnesota. There she won a Big Ten No. 6 singles championship and was runner-up at No. 1 doubles.

Chutich earned her juris doctorate at the University of Michigan Law School. A former Minnesota Court of Appeals judge, she was appointed to the Supreme Court in March 2016.
