The Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed a district court order granting mandamus relief to Jordan Real Estate Services, Inc. which compelled the City of Gaylord to approve a final plat for Jordan’s subdivision. The appellate court held mandamus is not an available remedy because Jordan did not comply with the City’s subdivision and zoning ordinances. Therefore, under Minn. Stat. § 462.358, subd. 3b, the City was not obligated to approve the final plat. This decision shows a preliminary plat is not the only point at which a City can stop the development process due to noncompliance concerns. Jason J. Kuboushek of Iverson Reuvers represented the City of Gaylord.
Richard J. Jacobson brought a civil suit against Mille Lacs County Sheriff Deputy Dan Mott, claiming his arrest for obstructing legal process with force was without probable cause and was in retaliation for his questioning of an arrest warrant officers executed.

Following a 3-day jury trial in federal court before the Honorable Donovan Frank, the jury returned a defense verdict in favor of Deputy Mott. Jason M. Hiveley of Iverson Reuvers represented Deputy Mott.
