Minnesota’s highest court is undergoing a historic transformation today (TUE). New Supreme Court Justice Wilhelmina Wright is set to take her oath, and a spot on the seven-member panel. Wright is making history as the first black woman to serve on the court. She is also the 90th associate justice in state history. The current appeals court judge was named to the position in August by Governor Dayton. Wright is the first Supreme Court appointment by a Democratic governor in more than two decades. Wright replaces Justice Helen Meyer, who stepped down to pursue other career opportunities.
