MN Bullion Dealer law Severability hearing, May 22, 2023, Minneapolis Federal Courthouse 10:00 AM
As many of you know, the 8th Circuit court of appeals declared parts of the MN coin bullion dealer law unconstitutional. They also sent it back to the district court to determine if the unconstitutional parts can be removed (severed) from the law, or if the whole law should be struck down. Earlier in the year the district court ordered written arguments on the issue. In an unusual move, after reviewing the written arguments the judge ordered oral arguments (usually if there are going to be oral arguments the date for arguments is selected before the due date on the written arguments). This could indicate she is having trouble deciding on the issue and or she has questions on the written arguments.
It will just be the lawyers taking, but the oral arguments are open to the public and you are welcome to come.
