Justice Lillehaug to leave the Minnesota Supreme Court in 2020

Minnesota Supreme Court Associate Justice David L. Lillehaug will not seek reelection to the Minnesota Supreme Court next year. He expects to resign from the Court effective July 31, 2020.
 
Explaining his decision, Justice Lillehaug said: “I have loved my six years of work on the Court and had planned to serve for a few more years. But my plan has changed because I have Parkinson’s disease. It’s at an early stage, it’s well-managed, and I feel great.
             
Even so, I’d like to have a more flexible schedule to work part-time. This will allow my wife and me to do more travel and the outdoor physical activities that we love. 
 
I look forward to the coming year on the Court. The opportunity to work with my colleagues for the people of Minnesota continues to be the greatest honor of my life.”
