WOULD BE OWN JUDGE (L. A. Paulsrude)
Source: Boston Record American (Boston, MA) Sunday, November 10, 1963; transcribed by Mary Kay Krogman

MANTORVILLE, Minn. (UPI)-A probate and juvenile court judge, who allegedly slapped an 11-year-old girl in the face for tossing fireworks in the street, wants to try his own case.

Judge L. A. Paulsrud, 49, said he wouldn't get a "fair and equitable" trial before Judge Rose Beaver, and asked for a change of venue to the "nearest salaried judge."

Paulsrud, himself, is the nearest salaried judge. In fact, he and Mrs. Beaver are the only such judges in Dodge County.


Wilson vs. County Commissioners
Source: Zumbrota Independent (Zumbrota, MN) October 17, 1895, page 2; submitted by Robin Line
Judge Buckham has rendered a decision in the case of Wilson vs. the county commissioners of Dodge county, in which the defendants are perpetually enjoined from meeting to pass on the petition of June 1, 1894, in favor of removing the county seat from Mantorville to Dodge Center. This effectually disposes of the matter at issue, which has been in litigation since the petition was filed, and demonstrates that county seat removals must come from a majority of the people, and not from townsite boomers.
