MN Construction Law Services Adds Federal Litigation

Minnesota Construction Law Services continues to expand its litigation services with the admission of Attorney Courtney J. Ernston to the US District Court of Minnesota bar.

Chief Judge John R. Tunheim swore Ms. Ernston in at the federal courthouse in St. Paul on July 25. She was joined by the firm's president and fellow attorney, Bill Gschwind.

"To be filed in federal court, claims typically involve parties or disputes that are not entirely contained within Minnesota," Gschwind said. "With Courtney's admission to the federal bar, Minnesota Construction Law Services may represent clients as plaintiffs or defendants where opposing parties are from other states, where our clients did projects outside Minnesota, and where federal issues are in dispute."

The out of state party could be a contractor, a manufacturer or a supplier. For example, a Canadian window company could be involved in a product defect claim filed by a contractor, a homeowner or business owner here in Minnesota. In that case, Minnesota Construction Law Services could represent the manufacturer, the installation contractor or the General Contractor.

Attorney Ernston joined Minnesota Construction Law Services in January to lead our growing litigation practice. She grew up in the family construction business and understands how disruptive legal disputes can be. She uses her experience to work aggressively to resolve disputes quickly without breaking the bank. Courtney also assists our clients with contract drafting and review, personnel and partnership issues, and immigration matters.

Attorneys must be admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota to appear before the court in any case or to gain access to the Electronic Case Files system. The ECF system allows case documents, such as pleadings, motions, and petitions, to be filed with the court using an Internet connection.

"I look forward to broadening the litigation services I am able to provide Minnesota Construction Law Services clients, Ernston said.
