The highest court in Minnesota was in Fairmont on Tuesday and Wednesday for one of their regular visits to communities throughout Minnesota. The event, titled “An Informal Evening with the Minnesota Supreme Court,” offered residents an opportunity to meet the state’s Supreme Court Justices as well as a number of local judges. The event was capped by an informational program about the judicial system.


The Supreme Court also heard arguments for a real case in the Fairmont High School Performing Arts Center the morning of October 9. This special program offered students an opportunity to witness the Court at work and interact with the justices through several assembly and classroom opportunities scheduled throughout the day.
