  • North Dakota’s Chief Justice will ask the legislature to create three to six new judgeships to help with a growing court workload brought on by the growth in oil development in the state.
  • In an attempt to bring attention to the increase in corporate spending on elections that followed Citizens United, Angela Marie Vogel and Corporate Person were married by Pastor Rich Lang yesterday.
