At the end of last month, CCLI Board Member Nelson Peralta was appointed by Governor Mark Dayton to fill one of two vacant seats left by Judges Thomas M. Sipkins and Lyonel Norris in Minnesota’s Fourth Judicial District.
Governor Dayton had nothing but good things to say about Nelson following his appointment. He thanked Nelson for his willingness to serve his fellow Minnesotans and for bringing a “diverse range of legal experience to the bench”. Nelson, along with fellow appointee Thomas Conley, will be chambered at Minneapolis in Hennepin County.
We are confident that Nelson will only continue to add to his ever expanding list of accomplishments while serving on the bench. A sincere congratulations and we wish you all the best moving forward with your Judgeship!
