Opinion Policies

Minnesota Supreme Court opinions are issued every Wednesday and are available to the public at 10 a.m. CST/CDT.

On Monday of each week, the Supreme Court mails a notice that informs counsel, pro se parties, and court personnel associated with a case that an opinion will be released the following Wednesday.  Opinions are available online or by visiting the Clerk of Appellate Courts, 305 Minnesota Judicial Center, 25 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, after the Wednesday release time.  Copies of the opinions are mailed to involved parties on Wednesdays.

In certain time-sensitive cases, the Supreme Court may issue opinions or orders on a business day other than Wednesday. In these instances, involved parties will be contacted just prior to the special release.
