Number of female chief justices for district courts in Minnesota reaches historic levels

For the first time in Minnesota history, half the state’s 10 judicial districts are headed by women judges, the latest example of the state beating the national average in gender representation on the bench.

Today, 43 percent of the state’s district court judges are female (125 of 291), 53 percent of the judges on the Minnesota Court of Appeals are female (10 of 19), and 57 percent of the justices of the Minnesota Supreme Court are female (four of seven).
