Law Alum Appointed Judge

Governor Mark Dayton has appointed Hamline School of Law alumna Suzanne Bollman '86 to a judgeship in Minnesota’s Tenth Judicial District. Bollman will be chambered at Center City in Chisago County in the district which consists of Anoka, Chisago, Isanti, Kanabec, Pine, Sherburne, Washington, and Wright counties. She joins Amy Brosnahan in appointments to succeed two retiring district judges in that area.

“Throughout their careers, Amy Brosnahan and Suzanne Bollman have shown their strong commitments to justice,” Governor Mark Dayton said. “Their records of public service, combined with their years of professional experience in the court systems, qualify both of them very well for these judgeships in the Tenth Judicial District.”

Bollman currently serves as an assistant Sherburne County attorney, where she is responsible for criminal prosecution, reviewing search warrants, advising law enforcement, and law enforcement training. Previously, she was an assistant Stearns County attorney, an assistant Benton County attorney, and an assistant city attorney for the City of St. Cloud. Additionally, Bollman was a member of the Supreme Court Gender Fairness Implementation Committee and the City of Ramsey Public Safety Board, and currently serves as a union negotiator and steward for American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFCSME).
