Courts at the Tipping Point: Tight Funding Imperils Justice Function
Rising demand for services and challenging economic conditions together jeopardize the ability of  innesota’s judicial infrastructure—including courts, public defenders, prosecutors, and legal aid—to meet constitutional standards and the expectations of the public.  In this, the first of three articles examining fiscal and public pressures on the system, we explore impacts on the courts.  Subsequent articles in February and March 2009 will take a closer look at public defense and legal aid.

Failure to heed this admonition could lead to dismissal even before you get started.
