Subd. 2. Altering boundaries. The Supreme Court, with the consent of a majority of the chief judges of the judicial districts, may alter the boundaries or change the number of judicial districts, except the Second and Fourth Judicial Districts.
Subd. 3. Hennepin and Ramsey probate judges; courts. The probate judges of Ramsey and Hennepin probate courts in office on August 1, 1982, shall be district court judges of the Second and Fourth Judicial Districts, respectively, and shall continue in office for the balance of the term for which they were elected and shall be eligible for reelection. The offices of probate court of Ramsey and Hennepin Counties, and all of their jurisdiction, records, powers, duties, functions, and personnel, are hereby transferred to the district courts of the Second and Fourth Judicial Districts respectively and made divisions of them. The chief judge of the fourth judicial district shall at all times assign at least two judges to the probate court duties.
Subd. 4. Determination of a judicial vacancy. (a) When a judge of the district court dies, resigns, retires, or is removed from office, the Supreme Court, in consultation with judges and attorneys in the affected district, shall determine within 90 days of receiving notice of a vacancy from the governor whether the vacant office is necessary for effective judicial administration or is necessary for adequate access to the courts. In determining whether the position is necessary for adequate access to the courts, the Supreme Court shall consider whether abolition or transfer of the position would result in a county having no chambered judge. The Supreme Court may continue the position, may order the position abolished, or may transfer the position to a judicial district where need for additional judges exists, designating the position as either a county, county/municipal or district court judgeship. The Supreme Court shall certify any vacancy to the governor, who shall fill it in the manner provided by law.
(b) If a judge of district court fails to timely file an affidavit of candidacy and filing fee or petition in lieu of a fee, the official with whom the affidavits of candidacy are required to be filed shall notify the Supreme Court that the incumbent judge is not seeking reelection. Within five days of receipt of the notice, the Supreme Court shall determine whether the judicial position is necessary for effective judicial administration or adequate access to the courts and notify the official responsible for certifying the election results of its determination. In determining whether the position is necessary for adequate access to the courts, the Supreme Court shall consider whether abolition or transfer of the position would result in a county having no chambered judge. The Supreme Court may continue the position, may order the position abolished, or may transfer the position to a judicial district where the need for additional judgeships exists. If the position is abolished or transferred, the election may not be held. If the position is transferred, the court shall also notify the governor of the transfer. Upon transfer, the position is vacant and the governor shall fill it in the manner provided by law. An order abolishing or transferring a position is effective the first Monday in the next January.
Subd. 4a. Referee vacancy; conversion to judgeship. When a referee of the district court dies, resigns, retires, or is voluntarily removed from the position, the chief judge of the district shall notify the Supreme Court and may petition to request that the position be converted to a judgeship. The Supreme Court shall determine within 90 days of the petition whether to order the position abolished or convert the position to a judgeship in the affected or another judicial district. The Supreme Court shall certify any judicial vacancy to the governor, who shall fill it in the manner provided by law. The conversion of a referee position to a judgeship under this subdivision shall not reduce the total number of judges and referees hearing cases in the family and juvenile courts.
Subd. 5. Judicial employees. The complement for the law clerk and court reporter assigned exclusively to a judgeship that is abolished under this section is abolished upon vacancy of the position. The complement for the law clerk and court reporter shall be transferred to the judicial district to which a judgeship is transferred pursuant to this section.
2.723 Expired
2.724 Chief justice of Supreme Court, duties.
Subdivision 1. Appointments. When public convenience and necessity require it, the chief justice of the Supreme Court may assign any judge of any court to serve and discharge the duties of judge of any court in a judicial district not that judge's own at such times as the chief justice may determine. A judge may appeal an assignment to serve on a court in a judicial district not that judge's own to the Supreme Court and the appeal shall be decided before the assignment is effective. Notwithstanding the provisions of this subdivision, no judge shall be assigned to serve on a court in a judicial district which is located more than 50 miles from the boundary of that judge's judicial district for more than 15 working days in any 12-month period, unless the judge consents to the assignment.
A transferred judge shall be subject to the assignment powers of the chief judge of the judicial district to which the judge is transferred.
Subd. 2. Procedure. To promote and secure more efficient administration of justice, the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the state shall supervise and coordinate the work of the courts of the state. The Supreme Court may provide by rule that the chief justice not be required to write opinions as a member of the Supreme Court. Its rules may further provide for it to hear and consider cases in divisions. It may by rule assign temporarily any retired justice of the Supreme Court or one judge of the Court of Appeals or district court judge at a time to act as a justice of the Supreme Court or any number of justices or retired justices of the Supreme Court to act as judges of the Court of Appeals. Upon the assignment of a Court of Appeals judge or a district court judge to act as a justice of the Supreme Court, a judge previously acting as a justice may complete unfinished duties of that position. Any number of justices may disqualify themselves from hearing and considering a case, in which event the Supreme Court may assign temporarily a retired justice of the Supreme Court, a Court of Appeals judge, or a district court judge to hear and consider the case in place of each disqualified justice. A retired justice who is acting as a justice of the Supreme Court or judge of the Court of Appeals under this section shall receive, in addition to retirement pay, out of the general fund of the state, an amount to make the retired justice's total compensation equal to the same salary as a justice or judge of the court on which the justice is acting.
Subd. 3. Retired justices and judges. (a) The chief justice of the Supreme Court may assign a retired justice of the Supreme Court to act as a justice of the Supreme Court pursuant to subdivision 2 or as a judge of any other court. The chief justice may assign a retired judge of any court to act as a judge of any court except the Supreme Court. The chief justice of the Supreme Court shall determine the pay and expenses to be received by a judge acting pursuant to this paragraph.
(b) A judge who has been elected to office and who has retired as a judge in good standing and is not practicing law may also be appointed to serve as judge of any court except the Supreme Court. A retired judge acting under this paragraph will receive pay and expenses in the amount established by the Supreme Court.
Subd. 4. State court supervision. The chief justice shall exercise general supervisory powers over the courts in the state, with powers including, but not limited to:
(a) Supervision of the courts' financial affairs, programs of continuing education for judicial and nonjudicial personnel and planning and operations research;
(b) Serving as chief representative of the court system and as liaison with other governmental agencies for the public; and
(c) Supervision of the administrative operations of the courts.
The chief justice may designate other justices or judges to assist in the performance of duties.

2.91 Redistricting plans.
Subdivision 1. Distribution. Upon enactment of a redistricting plan for the legislature or for Congress, the Legislative Coordinating Commission shall deposit the plan with the secretary of state. The secretary of state shall provide copies of the relevant portions of the redistricting plan to each county auditor, who shall provide a copy of the relevant portions of the plan to each municipal clerk within the county. The secretary of state, with the cooperation of the commissioner of administration, shall make copies of the plan file, maps, and tables available to the public for the cost of publication. The revisor of statutes shall code a metes and bounds description of the districts in Minnesota Statutes.
Subd. 2. Corrections. The legislature intends that a redistricting plan encompass all the territory of this state, that no territory be omitted or duplicated, that all districts consist of convenient contiguous territory substantially equal in population, and that political subdivisions not be divided more than necessary to meet constitutional requirements. Therefore, in implementing a redistricting plan for the legislature or for Congress, the secretary of state, after notifying the Legislative Coordinating Commission and the revisor of statutes, shall order the following corrections:
(a) If a territory in this state is not named in the redistricting plan but lies within the boundaries of a district, it is a part of the district within which it lies.
(b) If a territory in this state is not named in the redistricting plan but lies between the boundaries of two or more districts, it is a part of the contiguous district having the smallest population.
(c) If a territory in this state is assigned in the redistricting plan to two or more districts, it is part of the district having the smallest population.
(d) If a territory in this state is assigned to a district that consists of other territory containing a majority of the population of the district but with which it is not contiguous, the territory is a part of the contiguous district having the smallest population.
(e) If the description of a district boundary line that divides a political subdivision is ambiguous because a highway, street, railroad track, power transmission line, river, creek, or other physical feature or census block boundary that forms part of the district boundary is omitted or is not properly named or has been changed, or because a compass direction for the boundary line is wrong, the secretary of state shall add or correct the name or compass direction and resolve the ambiguity in favor of creating districts of convenient, contiguous territory of substantially equal population that do not divide political subdivisions more than is necessary to meet constitutional requirements.
Subd. 3. Notice of corrections. The secretary of state shall provide a copy of each correction order to each affected county auditor, municipal clerk, and candidate.
Subd. 4. Recommendations to legislature. The secretary of state and the revisor of statutes shall recommend to the legislature any additional technical corrections to the redistricting plan they deem necessary or desirable.
