Chief Justice of the Minnesota Supreme Court Eric Magnuson has been on the job for two years, and has been openly critical of the way state courts are funded. He is at odds with Gov. Tim Pawlenty over a new round of proposed cuts to courts and court services. In his latest state budget proposal, the governor seeks to cut $14.7 million from the courts to help erase a state budget deficit. MPR's Phil Picardi spoke with Chief Justice Magnuson.
