MN: the layoffs are coming

From In-Forum News: Clay lawyer cuts coming

Confronted with a potential $4.7 million deficit, the Minnesota Board of Public Defense will turn to layoffs to help balance its budget.

As a result, dozens of public defenders will lose their jobs, or leave voluntarily by opting for incentive packages. Those who remain will see their caseloads grow...

Incidentally, one proposal is to bury an army of 8000 clay lawyers to guard Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) in the afterlife.
