If you are looking to file an appeal with the United States Supreme Court from a ruling issued by an appellate court in Anoka County, Minnesota, there are certain steps you must take. To begin, you must apply to the Clerk of the Courts of Appeal. The Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) holds probate case files for around 20% of Minnesota counties, while the records of the other counties are still in the hands of those counties. The civil and criminal case files of the County District Court usually date from the first year of the county's creation to around 1950; however, the completion dates of the files held by the MNHS vary from county to county. In addition, revised rules allow parties to include in their responses a conditional request to the court to review additional issues only if the request is granted.
However, trial court decisions related to issues raised in a petition may be useful to the court as an addendum to the petition.
