According to the Minnesota Judicial Branch web site, the Minnesota Judicial Council "is the admistrative policy-making authority for the Minnesota Judicial Branch. [Its] purpose ... is to govern the judicial branch through the establishment and monitoring of administrative policies designed to achieve an accessible, fair and timely system of justice statewide, and to ensure that the judicial branch functions as an independent and accountable branch of government."
The only information the Minnesota Judicial Council provides on its about its meetings is their dates and location. You will find no minutes or other documents resulting from the meetings. According to Article VII the Judicial Council's By-Laws, minutes, of specified minimum content, are kept, circulated to members for review within a week after a meeting, with final minutes "posted on CourtNet within one (1) calender week of approval."
CourtNet is the Minnesota Judicial Branch intranet, inaccessible to the publlc. (Fascinating bit of trivia: If you search the Minnesota Judicial Branch web site, you will not even find a mention of CourtNet by name, except in the Bylaws provision concerning the posting of these minutes.)
