Court of Appeals

Also known as:
Minnesota Court of Appeals
Active dates:1983 -
Const. Art. VI, Sec. 2
Constitutional amendment (approved by voters, 1982).

Hear appeals from decisions of Minnesota district and municipal courts, and from actions of some state agencies.


The Minnesota Court of Appeals, which began on November 1, 1983, provides the citizens of Minnesota with prompt and deliberate review of all final decisions of the trial courts, state agencies and local governments. As the error-correcting court, the Court of Appeals handles most of the appeals, which allows the Minnesota Supreme Court to spend time resolving difficult constitutional and public policy cases.


Members: Peter S. Popovich, 1983-1987 (chief, 1983-1987)
