Marshall Tanick discusses 8th Circuit nominee David Stras in Minnesota Lawyer article
Minnesota Lawyer quoted Hellmuth & Johnson attorney Marshall Tanick in its article titled “Stras hasn't always fit conservative mold.”
Tanick was quoted throughout the article, which discussed the background of Minnesota Supreme Court Justice David Stras. Stras was nominated by President Trump on May 8th for a seat on the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Select quotes from Tanick include:
“It’s highly unusual, and maybe even unprecedented for a governor to have the opportunity to appoint the majority of justices on a state supreme court. I don’t know if that’s ever happened in Minnesota.”
“In oral arguments, he’s not a showboat. But I always found him to a very thoughtful, engaging justice. I think his decisions, both in my cases and the others I’ve studied, have been fair and thorough.”
