Briefly: Asking for Publication

By Eric Magnuson

February 23, 2021

We wrote a while ago about the Legislature's repeal of the statutory requirement that counsel provide the court and opposing counsel with copies of unpublished court of appeals opinions in advance of relying upon them. Eric Magnuson, David Herr, and Erica Holzer, "Clearing Up Confusion Over Unpublished Opinion Copies" (Minnesota Lawyer June 2020). We also wrote in more detail about the substance of the rule changes that were made to address the subject. Eric Magnuson and Geoffrey Kozen, "New Rules for Nonprecedential Opinions" (Minnesota Lawyer August 2020).
