Dayton appoints Appellate Court Judge Natalie E. Hudson to state Supreme Court


Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday appointed Minnesota Court of Appeals Judge Natalie E. Hudson to the state’s Supreme Court, elevating a jurist described as moderate with a reputation for plainly stated legal opinions.

Hudson, 58, has served on the appellate court since 2002, when former Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed her to the bench. She will succeed Justice Alan Page, who reached the state's mandatory retirement age of 70 earlier in August. Page has served on the state’s highest court for more than two decades.

Dayton, who has now appointed three members to the state’s Supreme Court, praised Hudson for her record as an appellate judge, authoring more than 1,000 legal opinions. He underscored his selection of Hudson by reading a passage from her cover letter.
