First of all, a hat tip to the Minnesota State Bar Association for picking the Mystic Lake Casino as a host site for one of the “Nine Days in June” presentations. The attendees here today had to navigate the maze of slot machines and black jack tables on the casino floor to find the conference room in the back. I didn’t stop to place a bet, but I can’t speak for everyone else. It’s probably fitting that Bill Wernz, who is of counsel at Dorsey & Whitney, is just starting his presentation on ethics.
New Minnesota Supreme Court Appointee David Stras is here today and I found out that NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon will be signing autographs right down the hall this afternoon. So there’s that too.
