Former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Sam Hanson has rejoined Briggs and Morgan after seven years of public service. Amidst the recent 2007 holiday season, he interviewed with Minnesota Public Radio and The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal about his experience as a judge and his immediate future plans about the next chapter in his career.

Just shy of the court’s mandatory retirement age, Hanson rejoins Briggs’ business litigation section and energy law group this month. He spent an hour on air with Kerri Miller of Minnesota Public Radio’s Midmorning show on Dec. 27, 2007, where Miller inquired about much of his personal perspective on the “job” of a judge:  handling internal disagreements, the process of deciding a case, the plausibility of keeping an open mind and more.

Hanson also discusses how he will divide his time in private practice in a Dec. 28, 2007 article, “Supreme Court Justice Steps Down,” as published in The Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal. To read the full article and interview, click here.
