Greg Galler Viewpoint: Who are these judges anyway?
"I've never met a judge before."
When I hear that from folks I usually respond that it is probably a good thing; most people who meet a judge have had something go wrong in their life. While there are 4.5 million Minnesotans, only 289 are judges. As our work tends to be somewhat isolated in impersonal buildings behind formidable security checkpoints, few people really know who we are.
