All Written Opinions

You don't have to guess whether Judge Ross will give great care and attention to the important issues that parties bring before the Court of Appeals. You may freely assess the quality of his reasoning, his approach to legal issues, and his thoughtful consideration of the difficult and significant questions he has been called on to answer.  

In the following pages we offer the complete list of Judge Ross’s 580 written full appellate opinions, not including his shorter, order opinions. You will see in these his commitment to the honored tradition of fair, reasoned, and impartial justice in Minnesota. Judge Ross has written substantially in all areas, including criminal law and juvenile delinquency, federal and state constitutional law, commercial and contract law, family law, child protection, civil commitment, administrative law, governmental authority, land use, employment law, and the various bodies of common law. We also include his dissenting and specially concurring opinions, which he has written in those cases in which his perspective on the law and the circumstances of the case has called him to voice an opinion that respectfully differs from the majority of the court.  You may access any of Judge Ross’s written opinions on the judiciary website under the archived Court of Appeals opinions retrievable by name, number, or release date (Archived Opinions):
