Dean Lewis to Investigate Landslide


Hamline School of Law Dean Donald M. Lewis has been hired by the city of St. Paul to lead an independent investigation into a May 22 landslide at Lilydale Regional Park that killed two schoolchildren on a field trip and injured two others. Lewis, co-founder of the Minneapolis law firm Nilan Johnson Lewis, will oversee an independent and wide-ranging review of internal city processes regarding the landslide, Mayor Chris Coleman said. Those specific processes could include a review of several city departments.
