MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A forum at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Institute on Thursday will look at the state of judicial elections in Minnesota.

Some fear Minnesota courts are in danger of becoming a battleground of big-money contributors and political operatives. Others counter that proposed reforms would take away the right of Minnesotans to choose their judges.

The 4 p.m. panel discussion features former Minnesota Chief Justice Eric Magnuson, who has argued for keeping partisanship out of the judiciary. It also features Greg Wersal, a GOP candidate for the Minnesota Supreme Court who has won several court battles to lift restrictions on judicial candidates.

It’s sponsored by Minnesotans for Impartial Courts and the university’s Center for the Study of Politics and Government.

    Today I was definitely in need of money. I searched on Yahoo for loan companies. I was thrilled to stumble upon an online payday loan organization. I was uneasy at first because I had never applied for a loan online before. I read up on online loans. I was told that the best loan sites will not call for faxes or credit checks. You certainly would not want an unwanted credit blemish if you were denied for a loan. Thankfully, the loan site I used did not require credit checks or faxes of any kind! The website advertised having a excellent approval rating. I wanted to do some more research before taking the plunge. After looking into it a bit more, I decided to move forward with it. I applied for a $2,000 payday loan. Thankfully, they sent me the money! And the best part was that I had the money in under an hour! After my experience today, I would have to recommend this website. http://www.loanbell.com
