Barry Anderson
Barry Anderson, Ken Mosier
Greg Highberg introduced his longtime friend and Mn Supreme Court Justice Barry Anderson.

Justice Anderson is no stranger to Rotary as he shared that he was a twice president of the Hutchinson Rotary Club and the first in Hutchinson to do a live radio auction for PolioPlus.
Justice Anderson shared some information on the MN Judicial system and asked us to visualize the branch as a pyramid. With the seven supreme court justices and 294 courts. He shared that the seven supreme court justices hear over 100 written opinions each year and that the justices meet twice a month to discuss cases.
Currently, the system is looking into a pilot project which will permit legal paraprofessionals to provide legal advice, and in some cases, represent a client in court when under the supervision of a Minnesota attorney. The Legal Paraprofessional Pilot Project is intended to increase access to civil legal representation in case types where one or both parties typically appear without legal representation.
Justice Anderson ended the program with quoting Judge Matthew Hale's
1660 Rules for Judges:
  1. That in the administration of justice, I am intrusted for God, the king, and country; and therefore:
  2. That it be done, I, uprightly, deliberately, resolutely;
  3. That I rest not upon my own understanding or strength, but implore and rest upon the direction and strength of God.
  4. That in the execution of justice I carefully lay aside my own passions, and not give way to them, however provoked.
  5. That I be wholly intent upon the business I am about, remitting all other cares and thoughts as unseasonable, and interruptions.
  6. That I suffer not myself to be prepossessed with any judgment at all, till the whole business and both parties be heard. Matthew Hale
  7. That I never engage myself in the beginning of any cause, but reserve myself unprejudiced till the whole be heard.
  8. That in business capital, though my nature prompt me to pity, yet to consider there is a pity also due to the country.
  9. That it be not too rigid in matters purely conscientious, where all the harm is diversity of judgment.
  10. That it be not biased with compassion for the poor, or favor to the rich, in point of justice.
  11. That popular or court applause, or distaste, have no influence in anything I do, in point of distribution of justice.
  12. Not to be solicitous what men will say or think, so long as I keep myself exactly according to the rule of justice.
  13. If in criminals it be a measuring cast, to incline to mercy and acquittal.
  14. In criminals that consist merely in words, we are no more harm ensues, moderation is no injustice.
  15. In criminals of blood, if the fact be evident, severity is justice.
  16. To abhor all private solicitations, of what kinds soever, and by whomsoever, in matters depending.
  17. To charge my servants, I, not to interpose in any manner whatsoever; not to take more than their known fees; not to give any undue precedence to causes; not to recommend counsel.
  18. To be short and sparing at meals, that I may be the fitter for business."
