At our February HCBA Board of Directors’ meeting, the board passed a motion directing the HCBA leadership officers and staff to draft a formal board resolution in support of the independence and integrity of the judiciary and the rule of law. It was pointed out at the board meeting that one of the primary components of the mission statement of the HCBA is “to promote public understanding and confidence in our system of justice.” Reaffirming our associations continued support for the judges serving in Hennepin County and throughout the state of Minnesota on both the federal and state benches through a board resolution will help to accomplish that goal. The board voted on and passed the resolution.
The association will be publishing the board resolution to our members, judges and to the public at large as appropriate. As the HCBA president, I am pleased that our association, along with numerous other bar associations across the United States, have stood up for the independence and integrity of the judiciary. I am also pleased to be able to tell our members, our clients, and our neighbors that the HCBA supports the federal and state judges, who serve the public in the county of Hennepin and throughout the state of Minnesota.
