Press Mention: John Baker Comments on Case That Could Eliminate the Quo Warranto Writ from Minnesota Law

In litigation now pending before the Minnesota Supreme Court, the state’s solicitor general has argued for the elimination of the quo warranto writ—a common law cause of action to force a government agency to identify the authority for its official actions.  In this Minnesota Lawyer article, Greene Espel attorney John Baker comments that the law—including the modern declaratory judgment action—has evolved such that the quo warranto writ is no longer indispensable.
