When considering our Volunteer of the Month selection for September, one name stood out: Pete Hendrixson. Pete’s incredible recent efforts on behalf of one very special client, in addition to his many years of commitment to CLC, made this pick an easy one. Pete Hendrixson has been a volunteer attorney for CLC since 1998. He served on CLC’s Board of Directors from 2003 through 2008, including one term as President.
We are excited to announce that Children’s Law Center of Minnesota (CLC) volunteer attorneys Ann Marie Hanrahan, Associate General Counsel at 3M, and Steven Lucke, Charles LaPlant and Mike Wahoske of Dorsey & Whitney, were successful in their appeal of CLC client N.Y.B’s expulsion from Anoka Hennepin School District. The Minnesota Court of Appeals held that the School District’s retroactive efforts to substantiate its expulsion decision were insufficient and that the expulsion violated N.Y.B.’s constitutional due process rights.
