Minnesota. Governor (1991-1999 : Carlson, Arne). Litigation materials, 1989-2000.

Litigation materials, 1989-2000.

Files documenting three separate legal matters concerning the governor's office. The main body of records, the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) files (1989-2000), detail three separate educational cases involving the State, the Governor, the Department of Children, Families and Learning and its Commissioner, the State Board of Education, and the Legislature as defendants. Two cases, dealing mainly with desegregation, involved the Minneapolis School District, and the other, concerning adequate funding, involved the St. Paul School District. The files, compiled by Carlson's staff for use by incoming Governor Ventura and later updated by his staff, include plaintiff documents, pleadings, correspondence, motions, and assorted background reports and materials, particularly a group provided by the Education Department. There are also files documenting a hazardous waste matter involving Marvin Windows and the Minnesota Environmental Enforcement Act of 1991 (1991), and United States and Canada border issues, particularly fishing regulation (1993-1998).
