6th District  


Judicial Branch Home >


Welcome to the Sixth Judicial District, serving Minnesota's Arrowhead Region in Carlton, Cook, Lake and St. Louis Counties. The District Bench includes 16 District Court Judges who are chambered throughout the District. Shaun R. Floerke serves as Chief Judge of the District, and is a member of the Judicial Council, which oversees the administration of justice in the state.

Together the judges and court administration staff work to provide just and timely resolution of more than 59,000 case filings each year.

Each county seat in the district has a courthouse; St Louis County has two additional courthouses in Hibbing and Virginia.  There is a court administration office for each location and a court administrator responsible for the day to day operation of that system. You can find information such as court calendars, fee schedules, jury information and contact information by selecting the desired location.
