'Special Master' hearings set to start Friday

Posted at 8:28 PM on June 30, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

Former Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz was named Special Master in a court order earlier this week. She'll be refereeing issues that come up as part of a state government shutdown.

She has meetings set for Friday and Tuesday.

Minnesota loggers, horse groups and others are suing the state, arguing that their industries are being severely damaged by decisions made to date about which government services will stay open in a shutdown and which will not.
