   Meeting Dates of the Minnesota Judicial Council (Minnesota Judicial Council)
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.)
