Aims of the Fellowship
The project on which I worked is based upon William Mellor’s The Dirty Dozen. My goal was to find and summarize the “dirty dozen” for the state of Minnesota. My job was to do the initial research for the project by reading through cases and trying to find the worst cases decided by the Minnesota Supreme Court.
